Project Support 2023-24

Signatur promotes a varied musical offering characterized by high quality and artistic renewal. Our support to music projects was launched in 2018 and we are continuing to fund new, exciting music projects, developing the co-operation with our partner organisations.

 

Current music projects

Signatur supports a variety of music projects, several of which aim at contributing to the development of children, young people and adults through the art of music:

 

À la Baroque at Drottningholms Slottsteater

The Deer Park through Chronotopia

Dream Orchestra Learning Centre.

Empower Production at Fryshuset.

Future Musical Role Models through UTOM.

Make Music Matter! through Linnaeus University.

Musethica Sessions in Östergötland by Musethica Sweden.

Running for Beethoven by Fairplay Chamber Music (formerly Järna Festival Academy).

The Talent Programme at Folkoperan

Through a donation from The Karlsson Játiva Charitable Foundation, RBU (Children and Young People with Disabilities) and Musik i Syd have since the summer of 2023 had the opportunity to collaborate further on the development of adapted and inclusive music productions in the project Adapted Music Sessions.

Through a donation from The Karlsson Játiva Charitable Foundation, the Royal Swedish Opera can in 2023-24 continue their work with the project The Magical House.

A safe space in which to grow

”Our participants in the Empower Productions project have been able to try out music production while having fun together and experimenting with their own expression in music creation. We have received very positive feedback from our participants when it comes to working in a separatist environment and having a safe space in which they can grow.

We are grateful to have the opportunity to carry out our project with support from Signatur and thus create better conditions and more opportunities for young girls and non-binary people to take their passion for music further, as well as to enrich the music industry of the future with greater diversity.”

Jessica Wejhem, Project Manager Empower Productions, Fryshuset.
