Objectives and priorities of the award
The objective of the Music Bursary Award is to support individual professional artists in the field of music in the development of their artistic practice.
The award emphasises the value and benefit to an artist’s development that is derived from an extended process of engagement with their practice at any stage of their career. The award therefore provides artists with the time and resources to think, research, reflect and engage with their artistic practice.
Potential proposals could be those that:
- Enable a composer or performer working in any music genre to buy time for the development of their artistic practice
- Facilitate the development or completion of a specific body of artistic work
- Enable artists to invest time in focused study of particular repertoire or area of technique.
