Beacons Cymru

BEACONS is a new music support initiative for emerging musicians in Wales. Its focus is on live opportunities, industry knowledge & creative workshops. BEACONS is working with key partners to help strengthen the support offered to emerging music-makers.

This initial scoping project is centred around three areas, including live performances, creative workshops and industry knowledge sessions, all of which will be wide ranging, inclusive and across regions in Wales.

During this research period, BEACONS has particular interest in:

- Learning from and listening to existing educators, local authorities, creative organisations, music stakeholders and artists themselves.

- Forging new connections and mapping key areas within the music industry of Wales

- Building upon and establishing new networks in the creative industries and educational sector

- Identifying existing pockets of music activity within Wales
