Beyond Borders, a collaborative cross-border programme run by PRSF, is currently open for applications. The scheme supports projects which create, tour and promote innovative and high-quality new music across all genres, and encourage engagement with audiences across England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.
Applications need to come from organisations rather than individuals, but individual artists can be encouraged to put forward ideas to organisations who will be able to manage them.
Please note that, as Creative Scotland is a funding partner in the Beyond Borders programme, proposals from Scotland-based applicants will need to demonstrate significant additionality to any activity supported by core or project funding from Creative Scotland.
Deadline: 24 July 2019

About the scheme
Beyond Borders stimulates and strengthens cross-border collaborations between music creators, performers and presenters. It supports the creation, touring and promotion of innovative and high-quality new music across all genres and encourages engagement with audiences across England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland through multiple performances and digital activity.
Funding of up to £15,000 is available for projects that include new commissions, recordings and repeat performances of music written in the past five years. Support is given to up to 8-10 projects per year that represent:
• Innovation and quality within the music, programming and performances, and potential for national/international profile.
• Strength and depth of collaboration between cross-border organisations/ensembles/bands and potential for partnership legacy
• Potential audience reach and impact and the strength of plans for public engagement.
