Amplify: Nest Collective Mentorship 2021
Amplify is our artist development programme. It aims to do as its name suggests: reinvigorate and develop contemporary and cross-cultural folk music in the UK by supporting the development of emerging music creators.
This year we are seeking four artists for our Amplify individually-tailored mentorship programme. Supported by PRS Foundation for Music and Arts Council England, and selected by a panel of industry professionals from an open call. The programme includes:
Mentoring by industry professionals. Each artist will be paired with a mentor for a series of meetings
£500 in seed funding to develop a project across their associate year. Eg: new work / recording project / new collaboration
Showcase opportunities at Campfire Clubs, Magpie’s Nest festivals, and other Nest Collective events
Facilitated networking with our wide range of industry contacts including agents, labels, studios, etc, tailored for each artist.
Creation of digital promotion and assets, including a performance video, produced and promoted by the Nest Collective.
Nature connection training as part of our upcoming 3-day residency.
