The English Folk Dance and Song Society (EFDSS) – the national development agency for the folk arts - has opened applications for new funding opportunities for artists.

The Creative Seed Funding Programme will make three awards of £750 to new and emerging musicians to fund the research and development of new work linked to English folk music. Deadline 23 June. W: https://www.efdss.org/efdss-artists-development/artists-bursaries/seed-funding

More established artists are invited to apply for a Creative Bursary to support creative research and development. The award is for up to £2,000, together with use of rehearsal space at Cecil Sharp House and access to the Vaughan Williams Memorial Library. Applications are invited from artists of any art form or genre who wish to explore new creative ideas working with English folk music. Deadline 26 June. W: https://www.efdss.org/efdss-artists-development/artists-bursaries/creative-bursaries

Both schemes come under the umbrella of EFDSS’ Artists’ Development Programme that provides professional development support, both creative and business, to artists at all levels of their career.
