Help Musicians targets Wales

18 March 2019

HELP MUSICIANS UK (HMUK) has launched a six-month research project into the needs of music creators and industry professionals in Wales.

The charity, which has expanded its activities from supporting artistes in difficulty to people who work in the live music sector, says it wants input from anyone who has experienced working in the business.

The online survey is open to artistes, managers, promoters, agents and event programmers.

“Wales has a rich musical heritage and we’re keen to understand how we can be most effective in the country.” says HMUK director of programme Claire Gevaux.

Neal Thompson, co-founder of the annual FOCUS Wales showcase festival in Wrexham adds, “It is encouraging to see specific attention being paid to the needs and wellbeing of those involved in the music sector in Wales.”
