About the residency

This year’s Musicians in Residence programme offers individual music creators a four-week (or equivalent) digital residency. Hosted by a partner organisation in the UK, residents will develop new ideas, experiment with their practice, and make new connections through engaging with the partners’ local cultural landscape.

The residency will be self-directed by the music creator, with support and guidance from the host partner. Applicants are invited to propose a project idea to help structure their work and time.

For this digital residency, the music creator will remain based in their home location for the duration, using digital tools to connect with the host and local scene. The four weeks of the residency can be completed flexibly to support any access or caring needs.

The programme is delivered in partnership with the PRS Foundation (UK) and host organisations around the world.

Who is this opportunity for

Musicians in Residence is open to music creators of all genres. Music creators may be composers, songwriters, producers – any artists creating music regardless of how they define themselves.

We are offering one residency for an Indonesian music creator to be hosted by a UK partner organisation.

We will look to match the music creator’s and host partner’s interest as much as possible.

Applicants must be based in Indonesia.

About the host partner

The residency will be hosted by Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival, a UK organisation based in Huddersfield, UK.
