Bristol Plays Music (BPM) is the music education hub for Bristol. We believe in the power of music – to inspire, teach and transform lives. We want to make sure that every young person has access to music education activities and a platform for musical expression.

Urban Development plays an integral role in the growth of urban music in the UK. Combining business acumen with an understanding of youth culture, we stand at the crossroads where the creativity of underground new music meets the music industry.

We believe that great art and culture inspires us, brings us together and teaches us about ourselves and the world around us. We champion, develop and invest in artistic and cultural experiences that enrich people’s lives. We support activities across the arts, museums and libraries – from theatre to digital art, reading to dance, music to literature, and crafts to collections.

Help Musicians UK is the leading UK charity for professional musicians of all genres, from starting out through to retirement. We help emerging professionals to develop their talent and help at times of crisis, but also at times of opportunity, giving people the extra support they need at a crucial stage that could make or break their career.

We are the UK’s leading funder of new music across all genres. Our mission is to stimulate and support the creation and performance of new music throughout the UK and to ensure that this music is enjoyed by a wide audience.

Our vision is to give young women an alternative platform to education and employment by nurturing their creativity through musically focused apprenticeships. We aim to provide young women with high quality mentoring and artist development with recognised industry professionals.

At 3rd Space Music we believe in providing communities with local access to safe spaces, quality equipment and inspirational guidance. We’re a group of arts organisations working together to support the next generation’s musical progression across Bristol. Each of us offers a variety of projects in learning how to make music, record and perform.
