The Do It Differently Fund will be taking applications from professional musicians, with a focus on independent music creators who are controlling one or more aspects of their career (e.g. self-managing, self-releasing, self-producing), until 15 March.

Awardees of the grant will receive:

  • £3,000 in financial support towards creative output
  • 1:1 business advice sessions tailored to your needs and delivered via experienced music industry professionals, as coordinated by ThinkMusic
  • 1:1 health consultation with British Association for Performing Arts Medicine (BAPAM) professionals, covering all aspects of a musician’s health, including physical and mental health needs and specialist referrals where required

This is the fourth round of HMUK’s Do It Differently Fund, which aims to help musicians to be able to continue to create and develop during this time when they are unable to perform.

To find out more about the fund, including eligibility criteria, and to apply online, see HMUK’s website.
