MOMENTUM II for early-career artists now open for EOIs
The AMC is pleased to announce MOMENTUM II, and call for Expressions of Interest. The deadline for EOIs is 5pm AEST on Friday 25 September 2020.
Cinque Artist Management has generously provided an amount of $5,000 to support a commission as part of the MOMENTUM series. The amount includes a $4,000 commission fee, and $1,000 as a contribution to the performance/realisation of the work.
As with the first MOMENTUM Commission, MOMENTUM II offers practical support in these uncertain times, this time to an early-career artist, to create and realise a work. The commission recognises the challenges faced by composers/creators who have completed their formal music or composition studies, or other development of their creative practice, and are at the early stages of establishing their professional career and networks.
The commissioned work must incorporate elements that embrace cultural diversity.
Candidates for this opportunity need to demonstrate that they have already produced a body of work, both during their formal studies, and since. Applicants may have previously received commissions.
The outcome would be the completion of a work, realised in a performance either in a concert presentation or via an online platform. The performance may be realised by the composer/creator or other performing artists.
> See the MOMENTUM subpage for all details and how to apply. A third MOMENTUM opportunity will be announced in mid-September.
