Grants of between £5,000 and £30,000 are available to businesses, collectives, and not-for-profit organisations working in the music industries to help open up sustainable work opportunities and careers in music for young people aged 18-25. In particular for projects focusing on under-represented groups; and to support creative employers to innovate and incubate new and diverse talent.
This includes both musicians and those who want to work in wider industry roles.
At least 50% of the funding should go directly to the 18-25s, with the remainder paying for organisational and delivery costs.
The funding is being made available through round three of the Youth Music Network Incubator Fund and is available to organisations that are based in the UK and operate in Scotland, England or Wales.
The deadline for applications is the 20th August 2021.
