Underpinning Hubs for the Future: Partnership Innovation Fund

Partnerships of Music Education Hub lead organisations and Music Services are invited to apply for funding towards innovative projects in which they work together to contribute to stabilisation and recovery in the wake of Covid-19.  Ideas may relate directly to current challenges or circumstances but we are also interested in seeing projects that may have impact in the longer term, or which lead to lasting changes in your offer or operation.

The application process is intended to be flexible to allow you to present your ideas in your own way.  Applications must come from a partnership covering at least two local authority areas and you can apply for £1,000 per local authority area.  The lead applicant must be a Hub lead or Music Service, although other organisations (e.g. NYMOs and NPOs) may be partners.  If we receive similar applications from more than one partnership, we may suggest combining projects.

The deadline for applications in the first round is Friday 18th June and grants will be confirmed by mid-July to enable projects to begin by the start of the new academic year.  Applications will be shortlisted by Music Mark and referred to an independent person for verification.  There will be a second closing date just before the October half-term.  All projects must be complete by the end of the 2021/22 academic year.  Please contact Rosie or Gary if you have any questions.

Music Mark is grateful to Arts Council England and the Department for Education who have provided £90,000 for this Hub Innovation Fund.
