Beyond Borders is a co-commissioning and touring programme run in partnership with Creative Scotland, Arts Council of Wales, Arts Council of Northern Ireland and Colwinston Trust.
Funding of up to £15,000 is available for both new commissions and repeat performances of music written in the past five years.
This opportunity stimulates collaboration between organisations and bands/ensembles in England, Northern lreland, Scotland and Wales. It enables music creators to produce exceptional new material to be performed in at least two UK countries.
Launched in 2010, the scheme has supported 22 projects so far, bringing together organisations and music creators across the UK and abroad.

All of these funding bodies believe that co-commissioning presents an effective means of ensuring multiple performances of imaginative new work.
In the current funding climate, we are delighted that they have championed this process and continue to support the development of new music across the whole of the UK.
