Tŷ Cerdd is delighted to announce a new season of CoDI, our multi-faceted
development programme for Welsh and Wales-based music-creators.
The 23/24 programme is made possible through generous financial support from
Arts Council of Wales, PRS Foundation (Talent Development Programme) and,

for the first time, Jerwood Arts, through the Jerwood Developing Artists Fund.

Lilli Geissendorfer, Director, Jerwood Arts, said: "What Tŷ Cerdd have been doing
through CoDI has transformed opportunities for early-career music-creators in Wales over recent years, and we are thrilled to be contributing to the next
season. The pathways we are supporting speak to both the ambitions of
composers at a pivotal moment in developing their practice, and some of the
pressing issues facing the sector, whether that’s empowering learning-disabled
music creators or responding to the climate crisis. We are excited to see the
pathways the selected artists take."

CoDI 23/24 features paid, artist-led pathways, alongside INTERACT, a suite of
workshops and training.
