Charity Help Musicians UK (HMUK) has launched the 2020 round of the organisation’s Do It Differently Fund, re-angled to support professional musicians navigating the uncertainty caused by the coronavirus crisis.
According to HMUK, the new funding round ‘recognises that musicians are having to work in innovative ways due to the restrictions around social distancing’, and aims to:
- offer a package of support for professional, creative and wellbeing development
- enable creative independence for music creators who wish to explore working innovatively through digital methods
- encourage new habits and good practices of sustainable wellbeing
Grants of up to £3,000 are available together with a day of expert business advice and a one-year free Pro membership with Featured Artists Coalition.
The application deadline is Friday 1 May 2020 with results announced on Tuesday 26 May.
