OCM is now accepting applications for Boom 2020/21.

Boom is OCM’s annual professional development scheme for music / sound artists/musicians and producers who are interested in creating and presenting inspiring contemporary music or sound based work outside of the concert hall and gallery (i.e. in unconventional spaces, outdoors, and in the digital realm). The scheme supports the development of artists (at any stage of their career) who are passionate about engaging with large and diverse audiences with contemporary performance, digital practice and installation work.

OCM actively strives towards equal opportunities for all and diversity in all areas of its activity, and positively welcomes applications from disabled people and people of any ethnicity, age, belief, sexuality, and gender.

Boom residencies are for 6 months (October 2020 – March 2021) and support practitioners and producers to lead their own development, research or training programme with no expectation of specific outcomes beyond the evidence of real and effective learning in their practice and profession.

Applications should be submitted by
10am on Monday 21st September 2020.

Shortlisted applicants will be invited to attend an interview online in w/c 28th Sept 2020.

The Boom residencies run from October 2020 to March 2020.
