All About Australian Rock Company Ltd (ARC)

Established in 1984, ARC is a not-for-profit cultural organisation, established to promote
general access performances, by original Australian artists,
in isolated, under-catered and financially uncertain areas.

This site has been set up to encourage communication between bands, young fans and local promoters, to assist in fulfilling this aim.

Live @ Lunch School Program

Live performance and workshops for your local school

ARC is pleased to assist schools, and local promoters, stage performances, in lunch-hour, with local and touring artists.

Performances can be coupled with workshops,
wherever there is an interest.

This offers a great opportunity for young people to gain hands on experience in all aspects of setting up and staging a live event

The Stand Fundraising Initiative

School & Community Fundraising Initiative

ARC is collecting CDs, Merchandise, Posters, Artwork, DVDs and all things related to original Australian music, art and culture, for sale, by schools and community groups, on consignment.

Schools and community groups will be able to fundraise with this project, by retaining a share of revenue generated. The Stand will allow students, and the community, to become familiar with a wide range of Australian youth culture, artwork, music and memorabilia.

It aims to be fun, make money for all concerned, and to create a strong, self-sustaining, interface between the Australian Music Industry, in general, and young fans, around the country.

Our Plans for Project 2020

(Beginning in 2019 – Here’s What We Have in Store)

ARCTIX

Establishing a recognised ticketing network to provide direct exposure for original artists and product, with potential for student discount rates. (Company events do not attract GST.)

Performance

Co-promoting supervised, co-curricula live and prerecorded performances and workshops with ARC Industry Members, schools, councils and other interested parties.

Promotion

Maintaining an up-to-date data base for promotional and product distribution. ARCs’ network can reach up to 1.5 million secondary and high school students, unemployed and working teenagers, nationally.

Here for the Marathon - Not the Sprint

ARC has been around since 1984 – 35 years and counting – we plan to be here for many years to come
to Celebrate, Promote and Support Australian Music into the future.

Expansion of australiarocks.org.au

Our site is continually being updated and improved so that fans and young promoters have easy access to their favourite bands and can gain exposure to acts they may not otherwise hear of. All original Australian artists are invited to link. The next step, throughout 2016 and into 2017, is to link young promoters (schools and community groups), new and established venues, so that touring acts, or those with new product, have direct access to new and improved markets.

Fun(d)raising

ARCs’ “Rock & Roll Fund” is eligible to receive tax-deductible donations by inclusion on the Federal Government’s Register of Cultural Organisations. ARC is a non-government organisation (NGO). It receives no government funding. Financial contributions made to the company, through membership fees, donations or sponsorship are greatly appreciated and assist in covering Company overheads in fulfilling its aims.
