Our Story

The idea for Ozstream was born as a way of giving back to friends and family who work in the creative and performing arts and seeing the devastating impacts the pandemic years had on their ability to do what they love.

Ozstream isn’t just about people. It is just as much about venues and business owners, who also experienced financial strain and hardship when they were unable to open their doors. They now find themselves facing difficulties in finding and retaining staff, and in their ability to source suitable artists, musicians or entertainers.

Artists of all forms, be they musicians, entertainers, writers, or creatives, they should all be recognised as professionals who are shaping our cultural identity. Driven by a desire to see that artists are receiving fair compensation and recognition of their contributions, Ozstream is collaborating closely with industry leaders to develop a range of programs to help revitalise the creative and performing arts industry in Australia.

OUR MOTTO

At Ozstream, we say “What’s Going On?” so much, we decided to make it our motto.

Asking “What’s Going On?” offers up many benefits:

It creates awareness: Allowing us to stay informed about the current and emerging issues and trends. Allowing us to gather a deeper understanding of the industry, emerging opportunities, and any potential challenges.

It allows for adaptability: Knowing what’s going on allows us to anticipate change, plan ahead, and take advantage of opportunities as they arise, or to adapt our strategy and help us stay relevant and responsive to ever evolving needs and preferences.

For networking and collaboration: Where it’s a great ice-breaker and can quickly break down barriers, encouraging communication, networking and collaboration.

Empowerment: Asking what’s going on empowers us to drive positive change. It helps us to identify where support may be needed, advocate for change, and contribute to the growth and sustainability of Australia’s Creative and Performing Arts Industry.Asking what’s going on empowers us to drive positive change.
