Open Call for Applications (Making Tracks 2024)

Making Tracks 2024 (UK)

Making Tracks - a UK based artist residency and tour inspired by musical traditions and the natural world - is currently welcoming applications from artists to take part in its 2024 residency and tour. The project will select eight Fellows (exceptional emerging music professionals, and more experienced musicians deserving of wider recognition) via an open call for artists. Relevance to one or both of Making Tracks' themes is more significant than what genre of music you play. Applicants are asked to write about their musical background and interests, as well as provide some other basic information, including samples of their solo and collaborative work.

During the Making Tracks artist residency (9th - 22nd September) musicians receive professional development, incubate new collaborative works, and take time out to develop their craft and career plans. They then go on tour throughout the UK (22nd September - 5th October), performing solo and collaboratively at 10 public concerts, and contributing to 10 youth music workshops.

The deadline for Making Tracks's current open call for applications is midnight (GMT) on the 31st May.
