Here at Leila & Geoffrey, we’re always looking for tips to share with our artist friends. We got really excited about this one!

The Help Musicians organisation launched a new program back in August – The Help Musicians Develop Fund. It is a fund to aid professional UK based-musicians access creative and professional development opportunities, both in the UK and internationally.

There are two streams:

The Transmission Fund – designed to help build careers by giving out grants between £500 – £1500, funding opportunities which allow musicians to focus on their development but supporting short courses, workshops, training, and coaching.

The Fusion Fund – offers £2,000 – £5,000 for musicians undertaking projects developing new work, ideas, and potential career directions through collaborative research.

We highly recommend researching more on the Help Musicians site!

There is so much help available, you just have to go look for it.
