General information about grants

Objective of the support programme

The aim of the programme is to encourage and support the creation of new Estonian music, thereby enriching the Estonian music scene and broadening the creative opportunities of creators.

The programme of the EAÜ does not duplicate other support programmes, such as those of the Cultural Endowment of Estonia, the Estonian Performers Association, or the Ministry of Culture. Our programme does not award creative grants, but provides financial support to cover part of the actual costs of carrying out a creative project.

The support programme is divided into three categories:

  1. commission for a new composition;
  2. creation of new musical works through various (co-)creative initiatives;
  3. production and recording of compositions in both audio and video formats.
