Arts Council England and the British Council have published the results of their joint research, Supporting UK musicians abroad. The publication explores the funding and development opportunities for British musicians and music organisations to export and develop international markets for their work. The aim of this research was to provide Arts Council England and the British Council with recommendations for how they could work together more effectively to maximise the impact and benefit of their support to musicians and music organisations wishing to develop their work internationally, whilst also responding to their own strategic aims. In arriving at our recommendations, we mapped the support currently available to those musicians and other music professionals in England working, or wishing to work, internationally, and identified where the needs of such individuals and organisations are currently unmet.
