are now open to applications for the 2019 edition of the Fusion Fund.

Aimed at artists and professionals with cross-sectional aspirations, the fund offers between £2000-5000 to allow awardees to “undertake UK-based projects that develop and test new work, ideas or potential career directions through inspiring periods of collaborative research and development.”

In order to be eligible, the solo artist, band, vocalist or conductor must intend to develop the project with contributions from one non-musical entity such as “storytellers, lighting designers, choreographers, technologists, scientists, gaming designers, theatre directors” or visual artists. With applications open until the 1st June, the full list of entry requirements and further information on the application process are available right now via their official website.
