About CoDI

Tŷ Cerdd's CoDI Composer Pathways is a multi-faceted programme for Welsh and Wales-based music-creators which was launched in 2018 with the aim of crating a community of composers and providing them with developmental opportunities. As the project has developed we've worked to open the lens and support an increasingly broad range of artists, cross-genre and from a wide variety of cultural and creative backgrounds.

Further opportunities for the 2022/23 season will be announced soon.

Ongoing activity includes:
