Horniman Museum invites applications from Afrobeat, Jazz, Grime, Rap, R&B, Reggae and Soul artists

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.
