RESONATE music event announces bursary

Music event RESONATE has announced a bursary, consisting of discounted tickets, enabling aspiring artists and music industry professionals to attend the event.

RESONATE is Glasgow’s networking event for people working in the music industry and students.

Consisting of workshops, masterclasses, panels and drop-in sessions, the event aims to bring artists in Scotland together, and encourage a more collaborative music industry throughout the country.

Taking place on 15 November at Barras Art and Design (BAaD) in the east end, RESONATE hopes to provide aspiring musicians with the chance to learn from those more established in the industry.

BURSARY

The bursary offers discounted spaces, enabling those who may not have been able to take part for financial reasons to attend.

General sale tickets cost £75, compared to £25 for those who are granted the bursary.

To be eligible, musicians must be currently living in Scotland and have been a resident for at least the last three years.

SPEAKERS

The event, which runs every year, will be opened by Maggie Crowe, who was voted one of the top 10 influential women in music, alongside Beyoncé and Taylor Swift, and who runs the BRIT Awards and Mercury Prize – two of the most prestigious music events worldwide.

Former Oasis manager Tim Abbot is set to close the event.

Workshops this year include ‘Surviving in the Music Industry’, run by Help Musicians Scotland, who are helping to subsidise the bursaries; ‘Crowdfunding with Pledge’, run by PledgeMusic and ‘International Trade & Megs’, run by BPI.
