Industry + Artist Support

Industry + Artist Support

We’ve received funding from The Arts Council NI’s Small Grant Programme and PRS Foundation’s Open Fund, big thanks to both organisations for their continued support. 

We’ve also had another amazing year of entries to our Emerging Programmes in 2020 – shout out to everyone who entered, arguably the strongest year yet across the board with lots of top quality submissions in every category. A massive congrats to our winners – Cartin (Emerging Producer), Andreas Lutz (Emerging Visual Artist) and Farhannah (DJ).

Also thank you to Native Instruments, Pioneer, Soundcloud, Notch FX and Belfast Photo Festival for their support and thanks our judges across the programmes for 2020 including Timmy Stewart + John McIvor (Extended Play), BICEP, Oisin O’Brien (DSNT/Visual Spectrum), Sarah McBriar (AVA Festival), Kevin Gartland (AVA Festival), Kev Freeney (Algorithm) + Emmett Costello (AVA Festival).
