Coronavirus Information and Resources
We've collated all the coronavirus-related resources and posts from across the Youth Music Network into one section, to help you navigate through all the content.

We're coming up to the final deadline for our Emergency Fund (Fri 15 May) which has been providing up to £10,000 for music-making organisations affected by coronavirus. Further information can be found here if you're still looking to submit an application.

A massive thank you to everyone who took part in the recent online networks recently, they all resulted in some really valuable knowledge sharing and discussions. We've collated all our resulting blog posts into one place covering topics such as wellbeing, safeguarding, engaging and delivering in both online and offline ways and singing for health. The below red button will take you to all our current resources produced during the current crisis.

Music Ally - Creative Entrepreneurship Programme - Deadline to Apply 26 May

Youth Music and Music Ally have joined forces to bring you the Music Ally Creative Entrepreneurship Programme - a certified remote learning programme for DIY artists and aspiring industry professionals to develop their understanding of the music business. It's perfect if you're an organisation working with young people 18+ who are interested in careers in music and/or are working with artists taking a DIY approach (e.g. they are their own manager, self release etc) and would like to learn more about the music business and how to grow their audiences. Deadline Tues 26 May.

Youth Music Awards - Nominations Open!
The Youth Music Awards in association with Hal Leonard Europe is back for its second year! The awards celebrate the achievements of young people taking part in the projects we fund, who are making music in all genres, all over the country, every day. They also recognise the organisations and music leaders that are tirelessly working on the frontline, going above and beyond to help the next generation of young musicians progress personally, socially and musically.

The current crisis means that everything is uncertain. We are planning for the Youth Music Awards to go ahead as a live event in October. However, we will keep everyone informed if this needs to change.

Music awards will be judged by a panel of music industry figures including Eve, Daisy Maskell, George the Poet, Chris Price and more to be announced, and we have some serious money-can't-buy experiences as prizes for award winners. The Youth Music Awards will take place on Wednesday 21 October 2020 at Troxy, London, where the winners will be announced. The deadline for nominations is 10am Monday 15 June.

Need This Have That
We have had a few queries from people with instruments/electrical equipment who are looking to donate or lend them to young people who would make use of them during this time. We would encourage people to use the question option on the Youth Music Network or the Youth Music Facebook group if you have equipment to loan or are seeking something from others. We'll then include a regular Need This Have That feature in future newsletters. You'll need to make sure any lending is done in the safest way possible, that everything is thoroughly cleaned and left for 72 hours before use and that you have clear arrangements in place with your swap partner. Currently we have offers of guitars (located in Hertfordshire) and an organisation (Music Fusion, Havant) seeking equipment for a 'studio in a box.'
