Grants available of up to £4,000 for “the development of group music making especially involving young people, with composition central to the project”.
What the Michael Tippett Foundation supports
- ‘Our single priority is the development of group music making, especially involving young people in projects incorporating composition and creative ideas.’
- ‘Because of our link with a major composer, the Trustees wish to see composition as central to projects put forward for support. These can include applications from organisations for group projects working with young composers, perhaps at postgraduate or early professional level, offering innovative ways for young composers to develop their talents and experience through engaging with group musical activity.’
- ‘Grants awarded will be made towards creative musical activity, not instruments or equipment. Projects might be first-time initiatives or the development of existing projects and must be based in the UK.’
