The programme is open to Black women and non-binary music creators based in the South West of England.

Saffron Records has announced its 2022-2023 artist development project. The six-month long programme will provide three participants with the support and tools to develop their music and creative practice. The project centres on a paid commission work which will explore the theme of human relationships and technology.

Alongside the commission, the selected artists will receive a range of opportunities and support including one-to-one mentorship, music industry masterclasses and a Saffron membership as well as taking part in a residential artists retreat and performing at a showcase event. Artists previously supported by Saffron Records’ artist development programme include Grove, Sarahsson, Ratiba Ayadi and Badliana.

Applications for Saffron Records’ artist development programme 2022-2023 are open now. The deadline for applications is 6pm (GMT) on 14 November. Head here for more information on eligibility and how to apply.
