Event description
Help Musicians is coming to Dundee, to meet musicians and to let them know how they can access grant funding and support.

About this Event

For almost 100 years, Help Musicians has been providing help, support and opportunities to empower musicians at all stages of their lives.

We’re an independent charity which aims to make a meaningful difference to the lives of musicians, offering a wide spectrum of support which includes; an integrated programme combining Health & Welfare services with Creative development funding, ground breaking research, a mental health helpline for the entire music industry and an incredibly popular hearing health scheme which aims to prevent hearing problems that would otherwise bring musicians’ careers to an untimely end.

Working in partnership with others to grow our impact, we ‘re passionate about creating a world where musicians thrive.

If you are a musician in the Dundee and Angus area we would love to meet you and find out what support you feel is needed and we find how we can help.

- Creative Funding : Advice on what funding streams the charity has to offer, such as the Do It Differently fund for £3K towards recording, releasing and live development. The team will also discuss how to build a strong application and considering creative endeavours for our more open funds.

- Health & Welfare : Information about Health & Welfare help for artists and the 24/7 support service, Music Minds Matter. Help Musicians know that being a professional musician is tough. When things go wrong, money worries can quickly mount up. The charity provides help for people in a crisis, facing a long-term illness or disability, or coping with retirement.

- Joining the Team : Help Musicians offers a host of different volunteering opportunities open to people interested in getting involved with the local music scene and gaining new knowledge and experience. Volunteers contribute to the charity’s work in a variety of ways, with commitment levels ranging from one-off event stewarding and fundraising, through to ongoing support for some of the musicians they help.

- General Charity Info : Information on what the charity has achieved so far and a discussion about events, the partnerships they have established, and current fundraising opportunities. This will be a chance for Help Musicians to talk about what they have planned for the future, and for attendees to find out how they can get involved
