We are excited to open applications for Drake Music Collective 2023, our professional development initiative for Disabled musicians. The programme aims to change the landscape for Disabled musicians, making a career as a musician more accessible and sustainable.
The Resident Artist (Creative Facilitator) role is for a Disabled musician* based in the UK, with 5 or more years’ experience of working as a musician. They will be an established artist who makes the majority of their earned income from musical activities. This includes performance, teaching, composition etc.
As a resident artist they will be able to pursue development opportunities as well as creating a piece of new music. They will have access to a £2000 seed fund, as well as the security of a steady income, sick pay and other benefits of employment.
They will also facilitate creative activities for other artists involved in the programme. This includes mentoring 3 early career artists and running monthly “open house” creative sharing sessions (online).
