Help Musicians’ funding advice tour returns to even more places across the UK

Did tour round 2 bigger

After the success of the Help Musicians advice session tour earlier this year, the Creative Programme team is gearing-up to make round two of the tour bigger and better, with 13 different venues across the UK being visited this time around.

Between 13 August to 5 September, the Creative Programme team will be on the road to give musicians one-to-one, 30-minute advice sessions. Artists will be given a chance to ask for guidance and advice on how to submit an outstanding funding application and will be able to get tips on what actions they can take to move their creative careers forward.

Help Musicians’ Director of Programme, Claire Gevaux, said: “Funding opportunities have the potential to be career-changing for emerging artists, so it’s important that we’re able to help applicants learn how to make their submission really stand out to the panellists who are deciding what projects should be supported by the charity. This is an opportunity that shouldn’t be missed by any musicians thinking about applying for funding.”

"Help Musicians UK supported our family when my husband became seriously ill. Without them we would not have been able to adapt our house to meet his needs. Now he is back home with his family where he belongs for which we will always be grateful."
