MOBO Help Musicians Fund
Help Musicians UK is now inviting applications for its MOBO Help Musicians Fund.
The MOBO Help Musicians Fund can provide financial support to help you create music, develop your business skills and drive your career forward. The MOBO Help Musicians Fund exists to facilitate these opportunities for musicians making hiphop, grime, R&B, soul, music of African origin, reggae, jazz and gospel.
You can apply for financial support of up to £3,000 towards recording and releasing music; and everything that goes around getting your music out there into the world. You could apply for financial support towards a new EP, a series of single releases, a marketing plan around new music or perhaps some content creation to accompany your release.
– £3,000 in financial support towards your music
– one-to-one business advice sessions tailored to your individual needs and delivered via experienced music industry professionals, as coordinated by ThinkMusic
– one-to-one 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
Is this for me?
Applications are open to UK musicians aged 18+ working in music of black origin. The MOBO Help Musicians Fund has a focus on independent music creators who are controlling one or more aspects of their career (e.g. self-managing, self-releasing, self-producing). You can be a solo artist, composer, group member, songwriter, producer or a multidisciplinary artist.
