Making Tracks – Virtual Residency and Digital Tour for Musicians

Making Tracks is a free programme that gives selected musicians the chance to create new collaborative works, develop professional connections and receive professional development from leading industry experts. 

Due to COVID-19 the organisation has developed a digital edition of its fellowship programme.  The 2021 Making Tracks will have two phases:  a Virtual Residency and a Digital Tour.  The Virtual Residency will take place over two weeks between 29th June and 12th July 2020 giving eight selected Digital Fellows the chance to create new collaborative works, explore and develop strategies for environmental engagement, and receive professional development and career advice from a team of industry experts.
