Creative Programme announces new National Grants Programme

We're thrilled to announce a new funding programme for organisations in the music sector.

This is the first scheme to be launched as part of a new strategy to revolutionise and modernise the way the charity reaches more musicians from across all genres and the whole of the UK following a review of all creative grant funding by the organisations’ Creative Director, Claire Gevaux.

HMUK’s new Creative Programme will provide a range of opportunities to support musicians during their careers by investing in invention across artistic practice, talent and professional development, removing barriers that exist for many to launch and sustain professional music careers across all genres. The programme has a catalytic approach which will actively seek opportunities to support entrepreneurialism and innovation as well as being shaped by the needs of the sector. The Creative Programme is split across four strands focusing our investment in: Learning, Professional Development, National Grants Programme and HMUK Futures with a research focus woven throughout.

The new National Grants Programme will offer open access funding for three years to organisations working with musicians.  Through the National Grants Programme, the charity will work collaboratively with organisations to help them develop more artists’ careers and grow their own ambitions to become more sustainable making a positive impact on the infrastructure across the UK.

Claire Gevaux, Creative Director added: “Being more robust in our approach to supporting organisations is the beginning of a new way of working for Help Musicians UK. I’m delighted to be launching this new open funding process and look forward to finding and supporting a diverse range of organisations that need to be recognised for the brilliant work they do in the sector.”  

Chief Executive, Richard Robinson, said: “Our new strategy places us in a unique position of being a truly independent one stop shop for musicians throughout their lives and careers. The National Grants Programme will help us to achieve our ambitious targets between now and our centenary in 2021.”
