This week, we looked at various different ways to get funding. After looking over the different organisations again I have selected a few that might be worth looking into more.
http://www.artswales.org.uk/what-we-do/funding/apply/individuals – this Welsh organisation is designed to give people living in Wales some support to get their projects up and running. You can apply for small (up to £5000) or large (over £5000) grants. Although it is aimed at individuals who already have some sort of local following I think it is worth keeping in mind for the future.
http://www.artscouncil.org.uk/news/arts-council-news/momentum-music-fund-open-for-application/ – based in England, the Arts Council have joined with PRS for Music Foundation to create the Momentum Music Fund. With £500,000 being invested, grants of up to £15,000 can be applied for by one musician. It is designed to support artistic development and career growth.
http://www.wai.org.uk/funding – this organisation aims to give Welsh artists their first international exposure and the chance to develop their project outside of Wales. Another possibility to think about.
