New Music Plus…UK
NMP…UK was a two year, nationwide, creative and professional development programme created by PRS for Music Foundation and run in conjunction with the hub that enabled hand-picked music events producers to work in partnership with non-music and cross-art form organisations who wanted to strengthen their approach to programming new music. 12 up-and-coming producers were paired with organisations around the UK to develop a series of new and exciting live music events from January 2013, culminating in a national symposium and showcase in the summer of 2014.
New Music Plus… aimed to:
- strengthen leadership skills and cross art-form learning amongst organisations and independent producers who have not previously worked together
- establish a UK wide network of producers and organisations which supports exchange of expertise and opportunities to co-commission or tour new work
- support the artistic and professional development of all who take part.
New Music Plus…UK built on two successful pilot programmes in London and the North West, which supported emerging producers to work with organisations from across the performing, visual arts and museum sectors.
