CICCIC is a grass roots music venue and for the past 12 years we have been supporting many musicians, genres, and projects.
Now we have the opportunity to be funded by the Department for Culture, Media and Sport as part of £8.5m boost to the music industry announced in June 2023 in the UK Government’s Creative Industries Sector Vision, £4 million has been allocated specifically to support rehearsal and recording studios, promoters, festivals, and venues for live and electronic music performance such as grassroots music venues and club sector organisations to apply for support for projects that help them:
- bring live and electronic music to the public;
- and support the development of talent.
The fund welcome’s applications from those who work in all styles of music and genres including jazz, folk, diasporic or ‘world’ (for example South Asian, Latin American or African), classical and contemporary popular genres such as, but not limited to:
- electronic (including house, electronica, drum & bass, amapiano, garage, techno, experimental)
- hip-hop and grime
- rap and drill
- R&B and soul
- afrobeats, dancehall, reggaeton
- indie and alternative
- metal and punk
This isn’t an exhaustive list. The programme we devise might fit into one or more of these genres, or we (and our audiences and wider community) might use different ways to describe the styles and genres we work with.
As a venue, we have our own ideas, but would like to ask local musicians and music makers what ideas they may have, and how we might support each other.
Therefore, we would like to invite musicians, music makers and music tutors to an informal meeting at CICCIC, Thurs 7th Dec at 6.30-8.00pm to discuss and share ideas and you can learn more about the fund. The bar will be open for the purchase of drinks.
