Applications are invited to a fund designed to help support, sustain and promote the growth of new music infrastructure by not-for-profit organisations in the UK.
Funding is available for not-for-profit organisations based in the UK to support new music projects led by promoters, large performance groups, talent development organisations, venues, festivals and curators.
The PRS Foundation is the UK’s leading independent funder of new music and talent development across all genres. It provides the Open Fund for Organisations with the aim of helping to support, sustain and promote the growth of the new music infrastructure in the UK.
Eligible projects must involve the creation, performance and promotion of new music and enable songwriters, composers, artists, bands and performers of all backgrounds to develop creatively and professionally.
Priority will be given to projects that fit with all three of the Foundation’s funding priorities:
To support the creation and performance of outstanding new music in any genre.
To enable the UK’s most talented music creators to realise their potential.
To inspire audiences at a local, regional, national and international level.
Organisations may apply for up to £10,000. Administration costs relating to the project can normally be funded to a maximum of 15% of total budget. Projects should have a clearly defined start and end date.
The deadline for applications is 10 July 2023 (6pm).
