Women songwriters, composers, artists, bands and performers who are writing their own music can apply for grants of up to £5,000.
The aims of Women Make Music are:
- To break down assumptions and stereotypes within the music industry by encouraging role models for future generations
- To raise awareness of the gender gap and to ensure that women are aware that support for new music is available to them
- To increase the profile of women who are creating new music in the UK
- To encourage women who may otherwise not have applied for PRS Foundation funding to do so
Women Make Music supports the development of outstanding women songwriters and composers of all genres and backgrounds at different stages of their career. The fund can support projects by women songwriters, composers, artists, bands and performers who are writing their own music.
Please note that they no longer support organisations through Women Make Music. If you are looking for funding as an organisation to commission a woman music creator for an upcoming project, please apply to the Open Fund for Organisations, where projects involving a diverse range of music creators will be looked on favourably.
The next deadline is 1st October 2018 at 6pm.
