Opportunities Funding Dundee Musicians' Award and Mentoring Project Deadline: Friday 19 January 2018Area: Dundee The Dundee Musicians' Award supports the work of outstanding Dundee-based musicians with grants of up to £500 to help fund the creation of new work in any genre, research and professional development. Run by Leisure & Culture Dundee, this awards scheme is also interested in supporting projects that look at creative development through collaborations, working with new partners, or new producers. There does not have to be a recording or gig at the end of the process: the creative process is valid enough. You can also apply to attend industry showcases or network events using this funding. Applications that will stimulate fresh and innovative work, giving musicians time to experiment and explore are particularly welcomed. Mentoring ProjectWith support from Dundee Place Partnership, Leisure & Culture Dundee are also offering additional funding for 2017/18 to Dundee based musicians to apply to the Mentoring project.This project will support two successful applicants to develop and progress their creative practice over 12 months. Tailored to the individual musician, the programme will include mentoring which may lead to the development of skills/training or creation of new work. The hope is that this Award will encourage musicians to stay in the City and that the existence of the Award will raise the profile of Dundee-based musicians at a local, national and even international level.
