Become Composer-Curator and organise new music events

Composer-Curator 2017

Are you a composer who also puts on new music events - from devising a programme and bringing the artists together, to drafting a budget and coordinating the logistics? If so, this call is for you.
We are looking for the next round of entrepreneurial artists to join our Composer-Curator programme - our refreshed new music touring programme that supports grassroots new much activity across the UK

What is Composer-Curator?

Composer-Curator supports entrepreneurial artists from a range of disciplines looking to create their own opportunities by curating their own events – tours, festivals and concert series – celbrating a change in step in the world of live music touring.

The programme not only creates a space for artists to produce new work; it enables them to hone their curational skills, generating a more sustainable form of practice that can positively impact the new music sector as a whole.

What do we offer?

We are looking to support exciting new music events across the country - from the traditional to the avant garde.

Artists involved in the programme receive a bespoke package of financial, marketing and audience development support tailored to their individual requirements, enabling them to better understand and grow audiences outside established cultural institutions, alongside other professional development.

They are encouraged to curate gender-balanced, accessible programmes that are inclusive to all audiences and best represent the breadth of talent and artistry present in the UK today.

What are we looking for?

We are looking to support UK-based composers to curate and produce a performance series, festival or tour of new music including, but not limited to, work by British composers. You can apply as an individual or as a group.

Activity must take place within the UK – between June and October 2017 (with flexibility) – and comprise more than a single concert or exhibition.
