Australia's first "mentally healthy" songwriting program


What is Illuminate?

An idea that has been in the works for many years, we are honoured to be collaborating with The Real Songwriters of Melbourne to deliver this event.

To be held on Saturday 14th September at leading Melbourne music school, Vocal Art Studios, Illuminate is a celebration of creativity in a nurturing and supportive environment. With a focus on building connections and creating new, original works, Illuminate will cultivate a space for artists to flourish.

But, Illuminate is not just about the music; it is committed towards fostering positive mental health practices in the music industry. Throughout the day, participants will take part in curated mental health and artist development workshops, designed to equip them with the tools they need to thrive both in their craft and their lives.

In this pilot event, Illuminate are proud to partner with Audio Technica and Concord Music Publishing ANZ.

Concord Music Publishing is a global, full-service, independent music publisher offering bespoke creative support from its A&R, Synchronization and Marketing teams and diligent administration by its in-house Copyright, Licensing, Income Tracking and Royalty departments. Headquartered in Nashville with offices in New York, Los Angeles, Miami, London, Berlin and Melbourne, Concord Music Publishing owns or administers more than 1 million copyrighted musical works. Spanning nearly two centuries of song, through a vast array of genres and territories, Concord represents the world’s most celebrated songwriters, composers and lyricists.

Participants of Illuminate will be treated to a special guest mentor (TBA) who will be overseeing the writing process and offer their expert advice.

Illuminate welcomes songwriters, topliners and producers of all ages and abilities to be a part of this new and exciting event. Only 10 spots will be available in each category (30 total).
