Open Call

In 2016, we launched our Open Call  initiative to support three music creators in laboratory-style commissions; offering opportunities to challenge compositional practice, explore working in new ways and provoke dialogue between composers, ideas and audiences.

In 2017 we worked with BAME, female and disabled music creators who want to challenge perceptions of how music can be created, performed and experienced. Our two successful artists in 2017:
