Deadline: 21 February 2019
This grant scheme is for UK musicians and professionals, for professional and creative development in Russia.
The grant scheme is for individual musicians and professionals (e.g. composers, conductors, performers, librettists, sound artists, event producers) who have an existing interest in or contact with Russia, and who have a strong project idea that funding would help them to fulfil. The UK-Russia Year of Music 2019 aims to make real connections between professionals, performers and audiences in the UK and Russia, and applicants will be asked to consider what the benefit will be both for their own career and their sector in both countries.
The maximum grant amount available is £5,000.
Applications may be considered from those who have never previously worked with Russian partners, but who have project partners in mind (or who have already committed to a project).
Successful grant recipients who have a strong project idea to be developed and implemented in Russia before the culmination of the UK-Russia Year of Music may be invited to apply for additional funding to develop their projects and ideas. Further information will be made available after April 2019.
All activity must be completed and all grant funding spent by March 2020, at which time you will be asked to report on the activity you have undertaken.
