We’ll be giving concerts again as soon as we can (join us!), but thousands of UK arts organisations, professionals and venues may not, due to the financial impact of COVID-19 restrictions.
Here are some things you can do to help…
- If you’re an amateur musician with an income, book some lessons with a professional teacher.
- Donate to the #saveourvenues fundraiser by Music Venue Trust to support the hundreds of music venues that are at imminent risk of being closed permanently.
- Donate to Help Musicians to support emerging, professional and retired musicians facing hardship.
- Join Public Campaign for the Arts in support of our cultural industries.
- Write to your MP to call for emergency funding for the arts. Here’s a template from Creative Industries Federation‘s #OurWorldWithout campaign:
We have signed an open letter to the Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, expressing alarm at reports that an extended ban on amateur music making is being considered.
