Zara Nunn, He Was Eaten By Owls and Dominic Murcott are the latest recipients of backing from the PRS for Music Foundation’s Open Fund.

The initiative is split into two strands – The Open Fund for Organisations and the Open Fund for Music Creators.

The former supports new music projects led by promoters, talent development organisations, festivals, venues, curators and large performance groups.

The latter backs projects by songwriters, composers, or artists, bands, producers and performers who are writing their own music or commissioning others.
