Investing in artist development

The Dyne Road Development Fund has been set-up by ICMP to provide students and alumni with access to funding to support their projects and professional development.

Collaboration is key

Initially, the majority of music creatives start building their careers with a team of one - themselves! Of course, it’s important to build relationships with fellow creatives and collaborate to develop your work. However, most of your first steps in realising your projects and bringing them to a wider audience will be carried out on your own.

Seeking support

At ICMP support is available to all students through our Music Careers and Industry liaison team. Staffed by industry professionals, the team is able to provide one-to-one guidance on the likes of artist development and release strategies.

Students acquire specific skills and support from their courses, but moulding that into action requires determination, drive and often, for certain things, a little bit of funding.

That is where the Dyne Road Development Fund comes in.

If an ICMP student, or alumni, can demonstrate that a specific element of their professional development requires a small amount of funding and is part of a wider, more significant plan linked to long-term career growth, they can apply for funds from the Dyne Road Development Fund.

ICMP is committed to investing in their students and alumni’s career wherever possible, be that through the ongoing support available from The Hub or via this initiative.

Applications are now closed for 2019 

The Dyne Road Development Fund has two application periods - one in Semester A, one in Semester B. The second application period runs from 1st February - 1st March 2019. Students and Alumni can access the funding application form on the Dyne Road Development Fund page on My.ICMP. Access is via your student/alumni log-in.
