Music Development Office

The South Australian Government has set up the Music Development Office (MDO) as a collaborative union of ‘Arts’ and 'Industry Development', to support the ongoing development of the music industry in South Australia. This includes the delivery of initiatives that facilitate artistic and business development, market development and export strategies, within a supportive music cluster environment that incorporates commercial operators and broader creative industries, and aims to accelerate industry growth and attract investment. The MDO is proud to celebrate Adelaide's recent designation as a UNESCO City of Music. Adelaide joins 115 other cities in 54 countries as part of UNESCO's Creative Cities Network.
