Welcome to Composer-Curator
Sound and Music's touring programme
Composer-Curator is Sound and Music’s national new music touring programme.
First launched in 2013, it supports entrepreneurial artists from a range of disciplines looking to create their own opportunities by curating their own events – tours, festivals and concert series – and thus celebrates a step of change in the world of live music touring. Composer-Curator not only creates a space for artists to produce new work; it enables them to hone their curational skills, generating a more sustainable form of practice that can positively impact the new music sector as a whole.
Artists involved in the programme receive a bespoke package of financial, marketing and audience development support tailored to their individual requirements, enabling them to better understand and grow audiences outside established cultural institutions, alongside other professional development. They are encouraged to curate gender-balanced, accessible programmes that are inclusive to all audiences and best represent the breadth of talent and artistry present in the UK today.
Composer-Curator nurtures the determination and enthusiasm of those changing the face of live music touring from the grass roots up. It is the first programme of its kind in the UK.
