Drake Music award creative development opportunities to emerging and established Disabled musicians to further their career.

These commissions can be themed around particular ideas ,or can be about offering an opportunity for an artist to take creative risks.

We support artists to create new work using innovative technology, and to contribute to the creation of new ideas around how to make and present music.
