The Lyrebird Arts Council have made many financial donations to local groups and associations over many years, and they’re very proud to have organised the fund raising event for Black Saturday some years ago that raised over $40,000. Lyrebird have been honoured to have been in a position to give back to the community where possible. In celebration of their 20th anniversary there is one community they wish to give an extra gift to – the music community.

The Lyrebird Gift is a one-off gift of $20,000 to a musician or band.

In keeping with their core beliefs, philosophy and approach to all they have done in the past 20 years, the application process to be the recipient of The Lyrebird Gift will be quite straightforward.

Email them at: and tell them why, as a musician, you should receive the gift.
That’s it!

Your entry may be some words, it may be a CV, it may be a link to your live music. Tell them who you are, what you do or plan to do musically and if possible, a sample of your music. Don’t forget to send your contact details.

Lyrebird have made a conscious decision to make the gift as large an amount as they can so that it will make a difference to the recipient.
