Discounts and subsidies

Mediating COVID-19 issues

Making Music Corporate Member Hugh Elder Mediation is offering Making Music member groups five hours of free mediation to help resolve COVID-19 related issues, such as venue hire and professional musician engagement.

What is mediation? 

Livestreaming Subsidy - any artist

To help Making Music’s promoter groups provide concerts during these unprecedented times, we are offering a subsidy for engaging any artist for a livestreamed performance.

Polyphony Arts

Polyphony Arts is an innovative organisation offering classical music artist and project management. They provide support to music organisations through business management and strategic planning.

They believe every music organisation is different and deserves a bespoke approach to future planning. They offer tailored support and strategies to help keep your members, audiences, funders and other stakeholders engaged, both musically and financially. 

Livestreaming Subsidy - Philip & Dorothy Green Young Artists

Many of our promoting member groups have had to cancel their concerts due to the Covid-19 pandemic. We know how disappointing this is, and that finding ways to stay connected with members and audiences by continuing to provide quality performances of live music is crucial.

An initial trial of the license is running until December 2020 and we're looking for groups to take part.
