The Horniman Museum in South London has opened applications to its 696 Resident Artists programme, which supports music artists ‘at the cutting edge of South London’s music scene’.
696 is a project which offers a platform for the best new Afrobeat, Jazz, Grime, Rap, R&B, Reggae and Soul music. The project focusses on championing music genres – and the people working in them – which have been disproportionately affected by bias in legislation.
With a budget of up to £3,000, Resident Artists will develop an artistic project in response to the Horniman’s collection of musical instruments, one of the most comprehensive and exciting in the UK, over a one-year residency
The 696 project will also include a series of live gigs, a major exhibition and a summer music festival.
Visit the Horniman Museum website for further information. Applications close on Monday 7 September 2020.
