Youth music development charity, NYMAZ, has announced that it is participating in Prosper, a business support programme from Creative United.
Designed to improve confidence and capabilities within business in the arts, museums and galleries, Prosper is an Arts Council England-supported programme offering nine months of support activities to 70 organisations – chosen from over 250 applications – to help increase resilience and investment across the sector.
Other Prosper partners include:
- Arts Marketing Association
- Access: The Foundation for Social Investment
- Centre for Business in Society at Coventry University
- Creative Scotland
- Esmee Fairbairn Foundation
NYMAZ will receive 1-to-1 sessions with a designated business advisor plus access to masterclasses, workshops, webinars and meet-ups. Business development support will focus on the development potential of the Connect: Resound project, encompassing live online music activity from instrumental tuition and live music broadcasts to professional development. The aim is to explore sustainable strategies for developing this area of NYMAZ’s work in order to create more opportunities for participation in music.
