Women in (New) Music: Grant Opportunity for Women Composers

by Maggie Molloy

Calling all women composers! The Allied Arts Foundation just launched a new grant opportunity for women composers and songwriters.

The grant, titled Listen UP! Music by Women will distribute at least $15,000 in award grants to women composers and songwriters living in Washington State. Nearly all musical genres are eligible in this cross-genre competition, including contemporary classical, electroacoustic, blues, R&B, jazz, world music, multimedia, sound installations, and more.

Across history women have been systemically disadvantaged in the fields of music composition and songwriting, often receiving far fewer opportunities and resources to create new musical work than their male peers. Listen UP! Music by Women presents an opportunity for community dialog, expression, and support for the significant female talent in Washington State.

The deadline for applications is Monday, April 30, 2018 at 8pm PST. Click here to learn more and submit an application.
