Online instrument and bow auction house Tarisio is offering five awards of $5,000 each for innovative string-based projects
Online instrument and bow auction house Tarisio is offering five awards of $5,000 each for innovative string-based projects through its Tarisio Trust Young Artists Grants scheme in 2017. Launched in 2015, the programme offers funding and publicity for one-off creative endeavours, shaped and driven by young artists.
'Tarisio Trust calls on you to be entrepreneurs, producers, communicators, and of course…musicians,' reads the company's website. 'You will need to devise and execute a string-focused project that is both creative in concept and artistically of the highest level. Some examples of suitable ideas for grant applications include: performances cycles/tours/festivals; online platforms such as websites, blogs, digital tools; and innovative recording or videoing projects. The more creative the better!'
Applications will this year be judged by violist Kim Kashkashian, Verbier Festival director Martin Engstroem and Quatuor Ebène.
The deadline for applications is 10 May. For more information and to apply, visit the Young Artist Grants website.
