AWAL AND PRS FOUNDATION PARTNER FOR WOMEN MAKE MUSIC FUND
8/14/19

AWAL, Kobalt’s recording company, has entered into a year-long partnership with UK's leading charitable funder PRS Foundation for Women Make Music, today (8/14). The flagship fund offers grants to support the development of music in any genre by women, trans and non-binary artists, of all backgrounds and at different stages of their career.

The partnership includes a £50k contribution and, alongside supporting between 40-50 grantees across three intakes, members of the AWAL and Kobalt team will be taking an active role in mentoring several artists throughout the year in addition to annual workshops, co-curated sessions at events AWAL are involved in.

Speaking about the partnership, Head of UK Creative at Kobalt and AWAL Alison Donald says, “We’re proud to be a part of such an important cause in the industry to support a significant number of outstanding female creators and invest in the future of music.” VP of A&R Matt Riley adds, “We're delighted at the opportunity to use the AWAL team’s expertise to mentor and advise grantees on the development of their careers ranging from global marketing and campaign coordination to A&R and sync.”

"Women Make Music has had a significant impact on hundreds of women music creators' careers. A broader range of talent is being empowered and we are championing the U.K.'s most exciting new music," said Joe Frankland, CEO of PRS Foundation. 

Set up in 2011, Women Make Music began as response to the low representation of women amongst songwriters and composers and lack of applications for funding featuring female composers/songwriters.

The next deadline for grant consideration is 10/1. More info can be found here.
