Robert Stigwood Fellowship Program

A Music and Industry Development Initiative

Applications are open for the fourth annual Stigwood Fellowships, which provide personalised professional development to local musicians and industry entrepreneurs and help them forge global connections.

There are two parts to the Stigwood Fellowship Program: Industry Fellows, where Stuart MacQueen of boutique Australian music company Wonderlick Entertainment will mentor emerging South Australian music industry entrepreneurs who are working in music management or other areas of artist representation.

And Artist Fellows, which will tailor programs to the needs of the participating artists and may include song writing, production, business skills, marketing and public relations, and attendance at conferences and high-level industry meetings.

Named for Adelaide expat Robert Stigwood, the annual Robert Stigwood Fellowship Program is run through the Music Development Office.

Mr Stigwood moved from his hometown Adelaide to England in 1955.

An impresario and entrepreneur, he was one of the most successful figures in the entertainment world in the 1960s and 70s, managing iconic groups the Bee Gees and Cream, theatrical productions Hair and Jesus Christ Superstar and films including Saturday Night Fever.
