Independent labels Ninja Tune and Big Dada are teaming up with London’s Southbank Centre and Lambeth Council’s Elevate careers fund for a new scheme designed to identify diverse talent.

Not artists, but people who want to work in the music industry.

The ‘Emerging Music Professionals‘ scheme is aimed at 18-24 year-olds living in London’s Lambeth district, with a focus on people from backgrounds that are under-represented in the music industry. That includes Black, Asian, ethnically diverse, disabled, neurodiverse and LGBTQI+ people, as well as people from lower socio-economic backgrounds.

10 applicants will be chosen for the free scheme, which will last for 10 months with training and work placements in the music industry, with the participants all paid a London Living Wage plus expenses.

Music Ally’s next Learn Live webinar will help you understand what’s required for artists to thrive in new international markets!
