Opportunities Funding The Michael Tippet Musical Foundation Area: UKDeadline: September 2017 Funding for the development of group music making, especially involving young people in projects incorporating composition and creative ideas. The Michael Tippet Musical Foundation wishes to see composition as central to projects put forward for support. These can include applications from organisations for group projects working with young composers, perhaps at postgraduate or early professional level, offering innovative ways for young composers to develop their talents and experience through engaging with group musical activity. Grants awarded will be made towards creative musical activity, not instruments or equipment. Projects might be first-time initiatives or the development of existing projects and must be based in the UK. Grants of between £500 - £4,000 are available, with the average grant awarded being around £2,000. The Foundation meets once a year in the autumn to select successful applications.
