The North East Endowment for Musical Traditions can support community groups that are seeking to increase participation for people of all ages in the traditions of the North East with grants of £750 to £1000.
By way of illustration, projects might include:
- Engagement of young people – for example, setting up a youth folk band, a singing group or a rapper dance team
- An introduction to opportunities for involvement in folk arts
- Development of those already involved, improving their skills and deepening their understanding of the underlying aspects of the tradition
- Provision of bursaries; with priority given to those under 25
Deadline: 10 April
