Grants for Regional Ensembles
The ASONE Hub funding programme for regional youth ensembles is now open for applications.
One of the key roles of the ASONE Hub is to support the musical progression of children and young people in Cornwall across the range of genres. One of the ways it does this is to provide grants to support a network of regional ensembles across the county. It would like to ensure that children and young people of all ages are able to access a varied menu of group music making opportunities, in a range of genres, across the county. This round of funding is to cover the period 1st September 2022 to 31st July 2023 (summer term funding being conditional of Hub funding from Arts Council England to ASONE Performfor financial year 2022-23).
We would like to invite organisations/individuals to apply for funding to support the delivery and development of these ensembles (this does not include school or college specific ensembles). The funding is available in two strands:
- Start up – To fund new ensembles in areas or instruments where a clear need has been identified and can be evidenced.
- Sustain – To fund existing ensembles which require additional funding to become self-sustaining or who have identified projects for which they require additional funding, eg tours, concerts etc. Ensembles must be able to demonstrate that there is still a need for their ensemble
All applications for funding must be submitted to us using the online application form below by 27th June 2022. Budgets and supporting documents can be uploaded through this form. Applications will then be assessed by the Hub Programme Director and Progression and Ensemble Leads. The amount of funding is limited and some applications for funding will not be successful or the full amount not given. Applicants will be informed of the outcome by 12th July 2022.
The funding will be agreed for the 3 terms, provided that the Ensemble Deliverer meets all the Terms and Conditions set out at the start of the agreement (and that ASONE Perform is still in receipt of Hub funding from ACE after 1st April 2023). Please ensure to read the terms and conditions below.
