Does having a profile on Continuo Connect mean I am eligible to apply for a grant?

Continuo Foundation conducts two rounds of grants each year, opening for applications in January and July. In order to apply, you must be a UK-based early music ensemble with at least three period instrumentalists. Festivals, vocal ensembles, duos and solo artists are not eligible to apply, but may form part of a project which is the subject of an application from an instrumental ensemble which meets the criteria. For further details on Continuo Foundation grants and to access the application form, please visit the Continuo Foundation website.

Please note that you will need a Continuo Connect artist profile in order to apply. If you don't have one already, please apply for one here before applying for a Continuo Foundation grant.
