Does Jazz South offer funding?

No, Jazz South is not a trust or foundation and is not able to invite individuals or organisations to apply for funding for their projects. However, some of our own programmes do offer financial support or subsidy for artists and promoters. We will outline the terms and conditions of this support as each scheme is launched. Join our mailing list to find out directly about all of our opportunities.

See our Resources and Links page for other sources of funding.

Can Jazz South arrange tours for bands?

No, we do not act as managers or agents. You may wish to look at our Jazz South Touring Map for information on programmers and venues in our region, and our Resources and links page for other sources of funding, development and support.
