Resonance: The Lockdown Edition

Resonance: The Lockdown Edition

Opera North's new ‘Lockdown Edition’ of their Resonance programme is open for applications. The project is designed to support UK-based BAME music-makers exploring new ideas and collaborating with other artists under and has been adapted to the current, uniquely challenging circumstances.

As part of their drive to address the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on artists and the making of music, Opera Norht want to hear from professional UK-based music-creators from Black, Asian and minority ethnic backgrounds, working in any genre.

Five successful lead artists will each receive a grant of up to £800 to cover fees for themselves and collaborator/s for 2-2.5 days’ work, and small equipment purchases. Project management and support to access other resources, funding and assistance will be provided to underpin the work and to enable development to continue following participation in the programme.

To be eligible for Resonance: The Lockdown Edition, applicants must be UK-based professional composers or music-creators aged 18 or over who are not in full-time education. Previous recipients of Resonance residencies are eligible. As a signatory of the Keychange initiative founded by PRS Foundation, Opera North aims to support at least 50% recipients who are women or are from gender minorities.

Deadline: 10am on Friday 8 May 2020. If you have any queries or would like to discuss your application, please email c
