Grants of £5,000 to £30,000 are available to businesses, collectives, and not-for-profits working in the music industries.
The fund is designed to help open up access to sustainable careers in music for people aged 18-25, particularly those who are underrepresented; and to support creative employers to innovate and incubate new and diverse talent. The fund is supported by players of People’s Postcode Lottery, and boosted by new support from YouTube which will provide digital innovation and investment to successful applicants.
The application deadline for the second round of funding is 5 February 2021.
If you are considering making an application in Round Two we recommend you read our blog post on how to create a strong Incubator Fund proposal.
On Tuesday 12th January at 11am Youth Music are holding an online Q&A aimed specifically at Welsh organisations, where they will explain the background to the Incubator Fund, talk through the application process and answer any questions you have.
