Resident Artist Programme


Resident Artist Programme

696 is a project platforming the best new afrobeat, grime, soul and jazz music, based at the Horniman. This project focuses on championing music genres and the people working within them that have been disproportionately affected by bias in legislation. 

As one of the resident artists, during your year-long residency, you will develop your own creative project in response to the Horniman’s collection of musical instruments.

This includes:

  • A budget of £1,000 – £3,000 to develop your creative project
  • A series of unique, intimate music masterclasses
  • One to one mentoring sessions
  • Access to free writing/rehearsal space
  • Bespoke digital content created about you, your music and project
  • Performance opportunities at the Horniman’s summer bandstand series in partnership with Balamii in 2020 and the 696 music festival in 2021
  • Access to a network of music partners
