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.

We have two months of fundraising time left – and we are aiming to raise a further £10,000 which, with match-funding, will generate a total of £20,000.

Could you help us to reach our target and ensure that we can make double the difference to composers, musicians, artists, young people and communities?

As a registered charity, any support that you can give us will 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
