After last year’s hugely successful nationwide call for new sonic works celebrating queer histories, stories and sounds we are delighted to announce the LGBTQ+ Composers Open Call 2022.

Here at Sound and Music and particularly on the British Music Collection, we feel it is important to capture moments in our history; to create space to reflect on music-making now, to celebrate individual voices and to address the underrepresentation of LGBTQ+ composers working across the UK and a range of backgrounds, styles and genres.

One of the ways we hope to amplify and celebrate LGBTQ+ composers, music-creators and sound artists is through a paid opportunity for LGBTQ+ composers – supporting them to create new digital works and present them on the British Music Collection online platform.

Our aim is to increase number of LGBTQ+ composers and music creators represented in the collection and to make this online space a safe, more diverse and relevant place to discover new music.

This opportunity continues our partnership with the LGBTQ+ Music Study Group as part of a 2nd series celebrating LGBTQ+ History Month 2022, a month-long celebration of lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, nonbinary and queer lives, culture, history and activism.


The opportunity

2 x £500 grants for new sonic works

Deadline for applications Sunday 13th March, 11:59pm, GMT.

These new digital works will be hosted uniquely on the British Music Collection online platform and shared via our social channels and newsletters
