WIDE DAYS ANNOUNCES RETURN OF HELP MUSICIANS BURSARY
Wide Days has announced the return of its bursary scheme supported by Help Musicians Scotland, offering a limited number of discounted bursary passes for emerging musical and industry talent. The 50 accreditations will cost less than a third of the full price (£25 instead of £99), with an additional allocation of free passes available for those meeting special criteria.
Open to anyone not in full-time education, the bursary will be offered on a first-come-first-served basis and successful candidates are required to attend an induction hosted by Help Musicians at the beginning of the event.
“We strive for Wide Days to be as accessible as possible, and this partnership with Help Musicians will enable successful recipients experience the event,” said Wide Days director, Michael Lambert.
The partnership follows the charity’s Scottish launch this week, which has seen events taking place across the country - including evenings in Edinburgh and Glasgow hosted by Wide Days’ parent company, Born To Be Wide.
Claire Gevaux, Director, Scotland said: “We’re delighted to be supporting the Wide Days Industry Conference again this year, demonstrating our pledge to work with like-minded organisations across Scotland to provide support and advice for the music industry. This much needed access to continuing professional development and networking features in our yearlong plan rooting the charity in Scotland and enabling the industry to develop their careers further. We look forward to meeting all the attendees in April.”
