Opera North is inviting applications from professional, UK-based music creators from Black, Asian and minority ethnic backgrounds. The applications are not limited by genre.
Opera North says: “Five successful lead artists will each receive a grant of up to £800 to cover fees for themselves and collaborator/s for 2-2.5 days’ work, and small equipment purchases. Project management and support to access other resources, funding and assistance will be provided”.
Since 2017, this annual scheme has seen residencies for projects which include musicals, film, opera and multi-sensory work which combines fragrance, light and music. The programme is supported by the PRS Foundation‘s Talent Development Partnership.
To be eligible for Resonance: The Lockdown Edition, applicants must be UK-based professional composers or music-creators aged 18 or over who are not in full-time education.
Applications should be made via a short online form before the deadline of 10am on Friday 8 May 2020.
