Making Tracks 2023 // Open Call for Artists
Making Tracks (UK) is an annual residency and tour, based around the twin theme of
musical traditions and the natural world. Every year we select eight Fellows
(exceptional emerging music professionals, and more experienced musicians
deserving of wider recognition) via our open call for artists. Applicants are asked to
write about their musical background and interests, as well as provide some other
basic information, including samples of their solo and collaborative work.
Making Tracks takes place each Autumn - this year between September 19th and
October 17th. During a two-week artist residency at Cove Park on the west coast of
Scotland, musicians receive professional development, incubate new collaborative
works, and take time out to develop their craft and career plans. They then go on
tour for two weeks, performing solo and collaboratively at 10 concerts around the
country, and contributing to 10 youth music workshops.
It is essential that all potential applicants read more about what we do and our
information on eligibility and selection criteria before applying. For more information,
The deadline for applications is April 21st 2023.
