Keychange Talent Development Programme for Women and Gender Minorities
Keychange is funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union and hosts an annual participant programme to champion, spotlight and upskill exceptional women and gender minority artists and innovators from 12 countries: Canada, Estonia, France, Germany, Iceland, Italy, Norway, Republic of Ireland, Spain, Sweden, Poland and the United Kingdom.
The Keychange participant programme encourages women and gender minorities to demand more from the music industry and provides them with the tools to empower themselves and each other.
With this open call, Keychange invites women and gender minority artists and innovators from the 12 countries to apply to take part in the next 12 month programme, and to become part of the prestigious Keychange participant network.
If you are selected your participation will start in January 2022 and will launch with a full-network meetup in London on 10-13 February 2022.
All participants will get:
Participation in full network meet-up in London, UK.
Showcasing or panel participation at one of 13 festival partners.
Participation in the full network meet-up at Reeperbahn Festival, Hamburg, Germany in September.
Mentoring via the we.grow programme in partnership with shesaid.so.
Capacity building with a bespoke training programme at ‘Creative Labs’.
Promotion via the Keychange talent bank.
A bursary to contribute to aspects of your Keychange participation and other costs paid directly. The exact amount covered by the bursary varies based on needs. Extra funding is available to support childcare, access, long-distance travel, and managers joining for showcases (if needed).
Bands and solo artists can apply. See the Keychange website for full eligibility criteria, which includes some country-specific points.
