This fund supports new music projects led by promoters, large performance groups, talent development organisations, venues and curators.
Projects must fit with all three funding priorities:
support the creation, performance and promotion of outstanding new music in any genre - they are particularly interested in the quality of the music
enable the UK’s most talented music creators to realise their potential - they are interested in how your project will develop the songwriters and composers involved and are committed to supporting UK-based songwriters and composers of all backgrounds
inspire audiences- you will be asked to outline who you are reaching and how; this includes audiences at a local, regional, national or international level
Projects must involve the creation, performance and promotion of new music and enable songwriters, composers, solo artists, bands and performers of all backgrounds to develop creatively and professionally.
