British music charity Help Musicians is dishing out some more cash to, yes, help musicians. It has announced the 39 latest recipients of its ‘Do It Differently’ fund, a year after it first launched.
This is the third round of musicians to receive funding from ‘Do It Differently’, which offers each recipient up to £3k towards their creative output, £2k towards business guidance and wellbeing tools, and support around that.
Help Musicians is working with the British Association for Performing Arts Medicine (BAPAM), the Featured Artists Coalition (FAC) and ThinkMusic on the fund. “The Do It Differently Fund is our most applied-to funding avenue so it’s incredibly fulfilling to see that the support we provided a year ago has had such a positive impact,” said director of programme Claire Gevaux. “The level of talent applying to the fund is still consistently high and we’re excited to see how the 39 new acts announced today will develop with support across their wellbeing, business and creativity.”
