Musicians can apply for a development grant or a project grant at Amarte. Here you will find what these grants mean and what the application consists of. Please also take a look here, because on top of a financial contribution you can receive extra professional support from an expert.
A development grant is meant to support you in the creation of your work. You can use this grant to write or compose a new album for example, develop a new research, or take the time to elaborate on an idea.
If you apply for a development grant we ask you to prioritize yourself as a creative. You may not have a concrete project plan yet, but it would be good to let us know what you would like to research or experiment with, and why this is important to you. Next to the description of your idea, it is important to include links to your previous work in the application.
For projects with a concrete plan, you can apply for a project grant.
Your application will be reviewed by the advisory committee Music. The most important factors they pay attention to are:
In case your application does not fully fit in the Music category, for example because it is a cross-disciplinary project, we make sure that your application is also read by the other relevant advisory committees.
