Youth Music’s Open Programme is now open for ONLINE applications!
Youth Music’s Open Programme provides grants of between £5,000 and £30,000. It aims to increase the number of children and young people with access to high quality, sustainable music making activities across England.
We are keen to fund projects which clearly progress the musical skills of children and young people and/or provide them with pathways for further progression. We are also interested in projects which are particularly distinctive or innovative in their approach. Our Open Programme targets nearly £2m of Youth Music’s funding towards projects that support our goals of:
• Early Years – advancing the learning and development of all children in their early years (0-5) by aiming to ensure universal access to high quality music making in England
• Challenging Circumstances – improving the life chances of children and young people in the most challenging circumstances by supporting them to achieve their full potential through engagement and progression in music making
• Encouraging Talent and Potential – realising the musical talent and potential of children and young people by ensuring opportunity for all to develop their talent regardless of background or chosen genre
• Workforce Development – enabling the highest quality music making by developing a diverse, highly skilled and inspirational workforce
