We All Make Music Bursaries


We are pleased to announce that we are offering 5 bursaries for the We All Make Music conference festival in March.

The event is all about equality of access in music education and we are committed to making it as inclusive as possible.

One barrier that can disproportionately affect disabled people is the cost of attendance, so as well as free places for PA’s, Drake Music is funding five “Pay What You Can” bursaries for disabled musicians/practitioners. The bursary covers the cost of the ticket and applicants are requested to Pay What They Can as a commitment to their place.

We are committed to breaking down barriers to music, and this is part of that commitment.


Applicants for the bursaries must meet three key criteria to be eligible. Applicants must:

  • Be unwaged/in receipt of benefits (e.g. Universal Credit/ JSA/ Income Support etc)
  • Identify as disabled
  • Be connected to music as either an artist, a music practitioner or music educator

How To Apply

Email Ruthcurrie@drakemusic.org, confirming the amount you are able to pay and that you meet the eligibility criteria. Please note that the financial amount will not be part of the decision criteria when awarding the bursaries. Bursaries will be awarded on a first-come-first-served basis and applicants will be emailed to confirm. The closing date for applications is 19th Feb.
