A new year usually means new energy and ideas to achieve our goals, but the events of 2020 pose a particularly difficult challenge: the impact that COVID-19 has had on the economy, and how it has compromised the viability of a big portion of the entertainment industry events, make for a rather somber panorama for 2021. This is no reason to give up, of course, but to seek all the resources and help that could boost your work and help you navigate the upcoming months.
One of the options I invite you to consider is the Transmission Fund, which exists to support music creators to build their skills in order to take their career to the next stage. It provides grants of up to £1,500 that can be used on education, equipment or projects by emerging and professional musicians of all genres and disciplines, including bands or ensembles consisting of six members or less.
Applications are open until January 25th, 2021. If you think the Transmission Fund can be beneficial for you, read more and apply.
