FUNDING: Help Musicians – apply at any time

Help Musicians supports professional musicians and music-led creative collaborations in the UK.

Professional UK musicians can apply for funding of up to £5,000 for music-led creative collaborations.

The grants support collaborations between musicians and other non-music artists such as lighting designers, choreographers, gaming designers, and visual artist.

The funding can be used to cover costs such as venue and rehearsal space, recording costs, travel, and fees for musicians, artists or collaborators’ time.

Groups of six members or less can also apply.

Applications can be submitted at any time but should be made at least three months before the funding is required.

Online information sessions are available to guide you through the types of activities for which support is available, the application process, common mistakes and top tips to help write the best possible application. The next scheduled sessions are on 10 February 2022 and 10 March 2022 and can be booked here.
