Making Tracks contributes to the professional development of musicians, with a focus on exceptional emerging artists, as well as more experienced musicians who are deserving of wider recognition. Through the professional development offered during our opening residency, which includes masterclasses and guest speakers, and more generally, Making Tracks Fellows are introduced to a wide range of industry professionals and enter into a growing network of adventurous musicians and change-makers around the globe. Our Alumni community also continues to support fellows beyond their participation in the residency and tour.
We are particularly passionate about supporting environmentally-engaged musicians. Making Tracks focuses on inspiring and facilitating environmental engagement on both practical and creative levels. We believe that musicians are in a unique position to inspire reverence and engagement with the natural world among the wider public, and are committed to creating opportunities to explore and facilitate this work.
