Transmission Fund offers grants for short periods of development, including online courses, 1:1 coaching, conference attendance, songwriting academies and masterclasses. Having been adapted for a socially-distanced landscape, Help Musicians’ Creative Programme Officer Barnaby Duff explains how the Transmission Fund might be able to assist your career, even in lockdown.
Caro C is a composer, producer and performer, and a recent recipient of Help Musicians’ Transmission Fund, which supported her unique development needs and allowed her to progress as a music creator. Enabled by our funding, her time with creative coach Heidi Chadwick is a great example of just how bespoke the Transmission Fund’s support can be.
Jen Green and Caroline Wigmore are musical theatre writers and recent recipients of Help Musicians’ Transmission Fund, which helped them at a crucial point in their development, both as artists and as women working in theatre. Caroline has written a blog to tell us more about their experience at SHE Festival New York this past June, presenting their new show, ‘The Bachelor Girls’.
In September last year, Help Musicians UK launched the Transmission Fund, which allows musicians to grow through funding career development opportunities such as short courses, workshops or one-to-one coaching sessions. We funded Bex Burch to return to western Ghana where she had previously spent three years living, farming and learning with the Dagaare tribe.
We caught up with Bex after her trip, and she gave us her thoughts on money and funding when you're a musician.
Hear from Bex Burch, one of the first recipients of the Transmission Fund, who used her money to return to western Ghana to live and play music with the Dagaare tribe.
