Songhubs: Where Kiwi writers mix it with the world's best.

What is SongHubs?

Songhubs is an APRA AMCOS initiative supported by New Zealand on Air, Auckland Council, Recorded Music New Zealand.

Songhubs partners emerging and established APRA AMCOS songwriters with renowned international songwriters and producers, creating new works for local and international markets. The potential for New Zealand songwriters is considerable, with Songhubs planned in both domestic and key international locations and territories around the world. 

Songhubs functions as an intensive, commercially focused songwriting residency, providing unique collaborative opportunities for both published and unpublished songwriters and composers, irrespective of genre. 

The program's aims are:

  • To establish New Zealand as a centre of music creating excellence;
  • To provide career pathways for high calibre New Zealand songwriters and composers; and
  • To maximise the potential of international collaborations in accessing new markets for New Zealand songwriters and composers
