Get Your Project off the Ground

We are delighted to announce Wired4Music Generate 2018, an opportunity to run your own music-focused project. 

Anyone living in London, age 18-25, can apply for £100-£1500 plus expert mentoring to run their own project.

Wired4Music Generate supports a wide range of ideas, from live music events, to workshops and choirs, and aims to bring together Wired4Music members for collaborative music opportunities.

As part of the programme, you will receive 1:1 mentoring to support you in making your own project or idea happen. We welcome applications from anyone with an idea and some experience of basic budgeting and planning.

Wired4Music Generate funds music-focused projects that can be: audio-visual, digital creation, education and learning, exhibition, festival, original work, participation, performance, production, professional development, publishing, research and development, talent development and touring.


Application Process

Wired4Music Generate is open for applications three times a year. There are three stages to the application process, as follows:

Stage 1: One-to-one surgery

These take place either in person or over the phone, they are an opportunity to get feedback on your idea and see if it would be suitable for the programme.

We will discuss the following:

  • What your idea is
  • Who the project is for
  • How much it will cost and what will need to be paid for?
  • Any thing you can get for free to help make the project happen
  • Any partners or other people involved
  • Estimated timeline

Please note, you will not be able to apply without having a surgery, and final surgeries happen the week before the application closing date. Please see Wired4Music Generate Guidelines 2018 below for dates and info on how to book a surgery.

Stage 2: APPLICATION

Once you have had your surgery, you will submit a budget with either a written or a video application and answer the questions outlined in the application pack.

Stage 3: PITCH TO YOUR PEERS

Shortlisted applicants will pitch their project to a group of their peers and give each other feedback (Dragon’s Den style, but friendly). There will be an opportunity to ask your peers questions and find out more about other projects. You will talk the group through your idea and, where necessary, present a revised budget.

For deadlines, dates and info on how to apply please see the guidelines below.
