Outward Sound has been set up to provide assistance for market development initiatives and to encourage the entry of New Zealand music and musicians into global markets. New Zealand music industry practitioners (artists, managers etc) and firms (record companies, associated businesses) can apply for assistance through the international music market development grants program.

Outward Sound is implemented and managed by the New Zealand Music Commission. The programme is inclusive of music from all genres, styles and niches and applicants may target relevant markets around the world. Bands, composers, songwriters, producers, companies and solo artists are able to benefit. Applicants at different stages of international market development can access the programme.
