As a small charity we recognise the value of collaborating and building partnerships with other people and organisations whose work or remit has synergy with ours.
We will continue to build relationships with others engaged in similar work elsewhere in Scotland and beyond, to share ideas, information and experiences of mutual benefit.
The University of the Highlands and Islands (UHI)
The UHI is the regional university for the Highlands and Islands of Scotland encompassing both further and higher education through a distinctive partnership of 13 independent colleges and research institutions.
From the outset we have worked closely with the UHI and now provide funds for four annual music student awards.
From time to time we also offer work experience opportunities to individual graduates who assist us in specific aspects of our work.
Highlands and Islands Enterprise (HIE)
HIE is the economic and community development agency for the Highlands and Islands of Scotland. Its Creative Industries Unit has extensive industry networks and supports businesses and social enterprises operating in the culture and creative industries in the region.
HIE’s annual XPONorth Festival is an international platform and showcase for creative industries across the Highlands and Islands. It provides an ideal occasion for us to meet others in the wider music industry to promote our work and explore opportunities for collaboration to support young musicians and others keen on a career in the music industry.
