Double The Difference

Donate to hcmf// and make ‘Double the Difference’ to artists, composers, musicians, young people and communities.

Over the past 2 years hcmf// has been raising funds from individuals, trusts & foundations and local businesses as part of our Arts Council England funded Catalyst Evolve campaign. This has enabled us to claim match-funding for every pound that we’ve raised – which we can continue to do on all funds received up until the end of August 2019.

Could you help us to reach our target of £10,000 which, with match-funding, will generate a total of £20,000 and help us to:

//   commission new works from emerging artists and world-renowned composers

//   work in partnership with other festivals and venues to ensure repeat performances on new works

//   bring together artists, composers, performers and programmers to create innovative collaborations and creative partnerships

//   fund projects engaging with children and young people, students, community groups, older people, families, amateur musicians and composers through our award-winning Learning & Participation projects
