Power Up Participant Programme

Wednesday, 10 March 2021, 6.00pm

Power Up is a new ambitious, long-term initiative which will support Black music creators and industry professionals and executives, as well as addressing anti-Black racism and racial disparities in the music sector.

The Power Up Participant Programme is designed to elevate exciting Black music creators and industry professionals and address barriers for those at crucial career stages.

Each year the Participant Programme will support:
– 20 x Black music creators
artists, songwriters, composers and producers who are involved in the creative process and may be working in any genre, based anywhere in the UK

– 20 x Black executives and industry professionals
industry professionals working in any sector of the music industry, anywhere in the UK. This includes employees and entrepreneurs, freelancers and self-employed professionals

Through a holistic Power Up Participant Programme and the Power Up Movement, we will break down barriers to create:
– A fairer, more equitable music industry for Black creators and industry professionals
– Better representation in all sectors of the UK music industry
– To support innovative and exciting Black talent to create exceptional new music in all genres and at all career levels
– To amplify the work of Black creators and industry professionals to accelerate change

Participants will power up through:
