The Open Fund For Music Creators

The Open Fund for Music Creators supports the development of outstanding songwriters and composers of all genres and backgrounds at different stages of their career.

The fund can support projects by songwriters, composers, or artists, bands, producers and performers who are writing their own music or commissioning others.

We understand that music creator needs are different given the current creative and career impact the Covid-19 pandemic is having across the music sector. As such we have adapted the Open Fund and Women Make Music to be more flexible in supporting music creator development needs.

Music Creators’ projects must fulfil all three of our funding priorities:

  • To support the creation, performance and promotion of outstanding new music in any genre
    We are particularly interested in the quality of the music
  • To enable the UK’s most talented music creators to realise their potential
    We are interested in how your project will develop the songwriters and composers involved.

If you are a songwriter/composer you will need to tell us why this particular activity is so crucial to your creative or professional development.

If you are a solo performer or small performance group commissioning others, you will need to explain why your project is so important to the songwriter or performer you are working with.

We are committed to supporting UK based songwriters and composers of all backgrounds.

  • To inspire audiences
    You will be asked to outline who you are reaching and how. This includes audiences at a local, regional, national or international level
