The first in our series of free online webinars to support musicians and music professionals during the COVID-19 crisis, hosted by Remi Harris MBE.

Session overview 

In the last few weeks many grant schemes, hardship funds, government programmes and arts commissions have been launched to support artists and freelancers in the music and arts sector. This session will clarify what’s available, and how to access the support that’s right for you.

Hosted by Remi Harris MBE, who has 20 years’ experience working across the music & creative industries as a senior manager, trainer, facilitator, coach and business adviser in the UK and internationally. She will be joined by people from a range of organisations currently offering emergency support and new types of funding.
