Discover how Help Musicians can support you in getting going on your next creative endeavour, and how to get started on your application.
These online sessions will guide you through the types of activities for which you can receive support, the application process, common mistakes and top tips, equipping you to write the best possible application.
Who is running these sessions?
Help Musicians wants a world where musicians thrive. As an evolving charity now in its centenary year, and following a year of extreme need, it has made the major move to remove deadlines from its creative financial support; ensuring musicians across the UK have more opportunities to develop, create and release on their own terms.
What will happen on the day?
These online sessions will take place via Zoom. They will last for 30–45 mins, consisting of a 20 minute presentation and a 15 minute Q&A.
When can I begin my application for creative support?
Whenever you're ready! The removal of deadlines and move to always available support allows creators to apply for help towards developing their skills, recording, releasing and promoting their music whenever they need it, 365 days a year. This signals the end of waiting for ‘rounds’ to be open and meeting application deadlines. Every application will receive an outcome within 10 weeks, no matter the day, week or month.
Why remove the deadlines?
Financial barriers shouldn’t stop a musician reaching their creative potential. Removing deadlines from our creative support means creators always have somewhere to turn to when they’re ready to progress their music, career or skillset.
