PPL Momentum Accelerator for Liverpool City Region

The fund can support projects by songwriters, artists, bands, and performers who are writing their own music based in the Liverpool City Region.

The PPL Momentum Accelerator Fund is managed by PRS Foundation in partnership with Culture Liverpool, PPL and Spotify, and funded by the Liverpool City Region Combined Authority Strategic Investment Fund.

Through this partnership, we will support:

  • 2 x PPL Momentum Accelerator artist grantees with support of £5,000 each. Artists or their representatives will apply through an open call run from August until early September, and grantees will be selected by a panel of independent expert advisors, with grants allocated in early October
  • 1 x full PPL Momentum Fund artist grantee with support of up to £15,000. Artists or their representatives will apply to our late August 2021 deadline and will be selected through the standard PPL Momentum Fund process
  • 5 x PPL Momentum Accelerator ‘Future Industry Professional’ grantees will receive £1,000 worth of support which might include a micro-grant, mentoring or other holistic support. Future Industry Professionals will be selected in partnership with the Liverpool City Region Music Board.
