WOMEX 2021 Bursaries
WOMEX World Music Expo will take place in in Porto, Portugal from 27 to 31 October 2021. This will be the seventh occasion of ACNI’s attendance at WOMEX which has fast become the most important international professional market for world music of every kind including folk, roots, ethnic and traditional music.
Selected delegates will participate in the national stand to promote their work to international arts industry presenters and promoters.
The Arts Council of Northern Ireland will offer a maximum of four bursary awards for WOMEX 2021. The award - £400 per delegate - is towards the costs of return flights, registration and a contribution towards accommodation and subsistence.
The delegate bursaries are available to musicians, managers and agents working in Northern Ireland and are aimed at those artists and promoters who have a track record of touring internationally, have excellent promotional material available (CD’s, website etc) and who would benefit from attending the event to promote their work at this particular music industry marketplace. Only one delegate bursary will be awarded per group.
