Scholarships available for non-white and disabled female-identifying musicians for the Home Recording Academy course
The Female DIY Musician (FDIYM) was founded by musician and academic Isobel Anderson and aims at providing learning, community and opportunities for women in music and also includes the Girls Twiddling Knobs podcast and a Facebook group.
FDIYM is putting on a seven module, online course teaching female identifying musicians how to record their music from home under the name Home Recording Academy.
The course begins on October 4th and costs £397, but the HRA are taking applications for four fully funded scholarships from August 30th – September 6th, 2021.
The scholarships are open to two for musicians who identify as non-white and another two for musicians who identify as disabled (including living with a chronic illness).
You can check out the application page here.
The Home Recording Academy scholarships are a direct response to the even more exaggerated lack of representation of both non-white and disabled women in music. I, myself, have lived with chronic pain for nearly 10 years now, and have first hand experience of the extra, intersectional challenges this presents to women in the industry.Isobel Anderson
