Sound Connections Innovate Fund 2023-24
Innovate 2023-24 applications are now open! If you are working with young people aged 0-25 through music then you can apply for support and investment of up to £2,000 to explore new ideas and approaches to working with children and young people.
In addition to funding, Innovate recipients will also receive mentoring and support from Sound Connections and free access to all Sound Connections training and networking events during the programme.
Innovate is particularly aimed at individuals and grassroots organisations with an annual turnover of less than £100k looking to launch or incubate a project idea and develop new connections and skills. Projects can take place across England. Projects that will take place in Levelling Up for Culture Places or Priority Places as defined by Arts Council England are strongly encouraged.
Successful candidates will work in close partnership with Sound Connections to develop and deliver the project. Every project’s needs are different, so the Innovate programme can be used to find the most appropriate support for you.
Deadline for applications: 9am Monday 11 September 2023.
Projects must be delivered between 1 October 2023 – 31 March 2024.
