The Open Fund For Music Creators
The Open Fund for Music Creators is designed to assist exceptional songwriters and composers from various backgrounds and genres at different stages of their careers. The fund is open to both individual music creators and collaborative projects involving artists, bands, producers, and performers who are engaged in writing their own music or commissioning others.
Applicants who are songwriters or composers should articulate why the proposed activity is crucial to their creative or professional development. Solo performers or small performance groups commissioning others should provide a compelling rationale for the project’s importance to the songwriter or performer involved.
Projects submitted by music creators must align with the funding priorities set by the Open Fund for Music Creators. These priorities include supporting the creation, performance, and promotion of exceptional new music across all genres, without any preference for a specific style. The fund aims to enable the most talented music creators in the UK to realise their potential, placing emphasis on the development opportunities provided by the project. Additionally, projects should aim to inspire audiences both locally and on a broader scale, outlining the target audience and the means through which the project will engage them.
