The Seed Fund has given me the confidence to think about doing this again. It’s been a really useful learning curve and I now better understand the mechanisms of how to do it successfully. I know that I can help the musicians achieve a decent income from an online gig even without funding support, and I can offer my audience, and indeed a much wider audience something that they want. Thank you
It was a pretty light touch process to apply for the Seed Fund and the payment covered my travel from Jura to France – helpful for anyone who finds forms challenging. Going to the fund puts your work into a well connected network as well as helping you financially which is worth remembering too. This was a crucial kickstart for what I hope will be an exciting project for Jura and Argyll when it unfolds.
