APPLY FOR A MUSIC EDUCATION GRANT

Funding is available for music education and projects across Cambridgeshire

Cambridgeshire Music Co-creation Grants Guidance

Cambridgeshire Music provides grants for partners to develop programmes of work with us that meet our current strategic objectives. This process replaces the previous grants scheme from 1st June 2019.
The co-creation process enables partners to work together to fulfil the goals of a specific project within the context of the wider strategies across the county, improving the potential for impact of the project and legacy of opportunity.
This guidance provides information for organisations and individuals who are developing projects that might be of interest to Cambridgeshire Music for joint development and investment.

Please see attached Co-creation Grants Guidance and Expression of Interest form:
