Grants to Help UK Music Creators Adapt to COVID-19 Conditions

Grants to Help UK Music Creators Adapt to COVID-19 Conditions

Funding is being offered to enable the UK’s emerging music makers to modify and sustain their creative work during the disruptive and evolving conditions brought about by the coronavirus outbreak.

The PRS Foundation is supporting artists, songwriters and composers to create and develop when they need it most. The PRS Sustaining Creativity Fund is designed for music creators experiencing hardship from loss of work due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

The fund will help UK artists from any genre to continue their work using a new model to support music making. The aim is to allow creators to spend time writing, recording, collaborating, innovating and making creative plans.

Grants of £750 will be available, to be spent on anything that enables music creators to continue to create exceptional new music.

Self-employed, freelance or unemployed UK-based music creators experiencing a significant impact on their work, income and ability to complete planned musical activities due to the coronavirus may apply.

The next deadline for applications is 11 May 2020.
