Clancestry Pathways is a mentoring program that has been created to offer twelve early career Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander song writing artists and media interns a hands on opportunity to spend a week in Brisbane with senior music and broadcasting industry professionals participating in workshops, discussions, media calls and recording sessions.

Hosted by home grown Queenslander Bernard Fanning, the artists and interns will participate in song writing sessions, live to air recordings, media training, professional development opportunities and business sessions. All sessions will feature Indigenous and non-Indigenous experts in the music and broadcasting fields, offering networking opportunities, access to world class facilities and the wealth of knowledge that Bernard has garnered over his impressive career.
