That’s great news! The True Music Grant sounds like a fantastic initiative to support diversity and inclusion in the music industry, particularly for under-represented communities. It’s encouraging to see organizations like Ballantine’s True Music and Soho Radio supporting independent radio stations and record stores in this way.
It’s also important to note the challenges that many grassroots music venues and radio stations are facing, particularly with the rising cost of living. The closure of several important stations in recent months is a reminder of the importance of initiatives like the True Music Grant and other funding opportunities for the industry.
I hope that the True Music Grant is successful in promoting positive change within its chosen communities and inspires similar initiatives in the future. It’s great to see that Youth Music is also supporting emerging artists with its NextGen Fund. These grants can be crucial in helping to develop talent and support a diverse and inclusive music industry.
