We have now opened a new round of funding for applications from community projects. The closing date for this round of award applications will be 29 October.

2) Projects based on analogue synthesisers: we have up to 20 special Behringer MS-1 analogue synthesisers to award to deserving projects. (NB – no cash will be awarded in this category)

3) Projects based on community choirs: Up to £2,000 per successful application to support one or multiple choir-based community projects.

5) Educational establishments nurturing talent in children aged between 11-16 in underprivileged communities: Up to £2,000 per successful application to support one or multiple educational establishments nurturing underprivileged young talent.

All these awards will acknowledge the challenges Covid has brought to nearly all music makers and educators and recognise the vital role music plays in uniting communities and improving wellbeing.
