Call to Composers
CoDI Mentoring Circle will bring together six Wales-based, mid-career composers to share practice and learning over 3 months (July to September ’23)
The participants will receive £1,000 each, representing c40 hours of shared time/responsive writing and reflection across the period (sessions to be arranged collaboratively by the group). It is envisaged that participants will blend online sessions with sharing through email and (eg) Slack, alongside some face-to-face meetings. A small travel bursary will be available, to support participants to meet in person.
