Generate April 2021: Round 1

Calling all Musicians, Artists, Creatives, Curators, Wired4Music members. We’re commissioning new projects!

With our new and updated Generate 2021 programme, this is a chance to flaunt your creative skills and work in partnership with Wired4Music.

There are two ways you can apply to the new Generate programme:

Generate R+D Guidelines

Apply for up to £350 for a personal project to enhance your development, artistry, skills or professionalism in music. This could look like:

  • Taking on a Residency
  • Testing out a new project idea; especially if it gets you working in a new way i.e. experimenting with other genres, techniques or skills
  • Create a new piece of scratch work (i.e. not in finished form) that allows you to meet new collaborators and try out new skills and ideas
  • Research and Development projects are a way for you to experiment, research and plan, to work towards developing yourself as an artist or creative.

Generate Commission Guidelines

Thinking about doing a bigger music project that involves and benefits other 16-25’s?

Why not apply for a brand new Wired4Music Generate Commission? We can pay project costs of up to £1,750 and you will work in partnership with Wired4Music to deliver a medium/large scale project.

These projects will be named under the commission title of  ‘Wired4Music Generate Presents…..your project title’

These projects could look like:

  • Music workshops
  • Live music event
  • Installation / exhibition
  • Collaborative project
  • Mentoring programmes

During our ideas sessions you can speak to staff who can advise you on your project idea and if it is suitable. These sessions will begin on Weds 21 April . It’d be a great idea to start thinking about your budget and project ahead of your ideas session.

For further information or to apply please contact

With the subject title ‘IDEAS SESSION’.

We will then book you in for a 30 minute session with us to talk through your project idea!

Ideas Sessions are open between Weds 21 April – Tues 11 May. This is a chance to talk to the Wired4Music Team about your idea and get feedback. This can be by telephone, or email. Please get in contact if there’s another way you’d like to do your ideas session.
