DATES FOR YOUR DIARY

HOW TO APPLY

1. Dream up a new idea for an ambitious piece of music that includes improvisation.

2. Once you’ve got your idea, fill in the simple form below. We are interested in learning about your idea and, crucially, identifying the barriers that you are facing. We need you to be open, honest and it’s ok to be vulnerable here. We can make the best impact if we know what you are going through. If you want to answer the questions by video rather than on the form, that’s fine.

3. Send us a home-made video of you performing live – no longer than 2-ish minutes please. We don’t want flash edits, we just want to hear your sound.

FORM TO APPLY HERE

Simply upload the short video of your performance to WeTransfer for free and send it to ash@manchesterjazz.com

DEADLINE for applications: midnight on 31 August 2021.
