Moving On Music (MOM) is delighted to announce our new ‘Emerging Artist Programme’, kindly supported by The Esmée Fairbairn Foundation.
The Emerging Artist Programme will provide unique opportunities for a number of NI based musicians and/or composers to work with MOM over a 12-month period. The programme is designed and intended to help emerging artists develop their careers towards professional practice by providing tailored support and development opportunities including professional mentoring, performance, artist promotion and networking. Please refer to the application documents for full information.
We are inviting musicians (soloists or groups) and composers from, or based in Northern Ireland to apply for a place on the programme. We are interested in applications from the range of under-represented genres that MOM specializes in (Jazz, Chamber/Classical, Traditional, Contemporary). Please see below for application details and criteria. Selection will be based upon fulfilment of each criteria, artistic quality, potential, and need.
Please note this scheme is for emerging artists only, we cannot accept applications from artists already working in a professional capacity. Likewise emerging artists must be at the point in their career where they will benefit most from this scheme; they must be over 18 and not in formal education or training. Please note this is the first of a two-year programme, and so if you do not meet the criteria this year, there will be opportunities to apply again in 2017.
Applicant Criteria (for full information please refer to the application at the bottom of the page)
- Be over 18
- Be a resident of Northern Ireland
- Must not be in formal education or training (full or part time)
- Must be able to demonstrate a high quality of performance practice with the potential and commitment to developing a professional career in music
