The leading independent music charity Help Musicians UK (HMUK) announces the launch of a new, holistic fund that will provide the most comprehensive suite of support yet for independently-driven music creators.
This pivotal new £200,000 fund for independent music creators offers a 360-degree support package across creative, wellbeing and business
The Do It Differently Fund is now open for applications via the HMUK website and has been designed by Help Musicians UK following extensive qualitative research into the funding gaps and needs of the UK’s exceptional DIY talent.
The UK-wide fund will award 20 creators in its first round, whether they’re a producer, composer, songwriter, musician, vocalist, DJ, beatboxer or beyond, at any stage of their career and in any genre. The fund will offer individuals or bands/ensembles of six members or less, a grant of up to £3,000 focused on either developing experience in touring or recording. A further £2,000 is set aside for each successful applicant to go towards business planning and wellbeing services available directly from HMUK and its industry partners.
Closing date of 17th May 2019
