Help Musicians UK has announced the first set of professional development projects to be supported by its Transmission Fund for 2019.

The Fund will see 15 UK artists each embark on a short-term developmental activity of their choice, ranging from educational camps at Tileyard Studios in Kings Cross and creative retreats in the Scottish countryside, to international collaboration opportunities with Japanese Grime artists in Osaka and high-level Klezmer music courses in Canada and Germany.

Through the Transmission Fund, Help Musicians UK has so far supported more than 100 artists and groups to participate in developmental activities such as short courses in production, song writing camps, composer residencies, masterclasses in creative practice and bespoke one-on-one training in 23 different countries and counting. Recipients get between £500 - £1500 to finance opportunities that allow them to focus on developing their artistic and professional development at a crucial point in their career. The funds awarded can be spent on access fees, travel and accommodation.

The full list of recipients for this round are: Emaé, Angela Elizabeth Slater, Anneke Scott, SHAR, David Booth, De’Borah, Flora Curzon, Giulia Grassi, Guy Connelly, Bellatrix, Me Lost Me, Joseph Havlat, Mayday, Sarah Parkin and Tomas Leakey.

If you know of a short-term opportunity that could help you progress your career as a professional musician, apply now before the next round closes on 8 July.
