Music to Life / Due: May 24

Music to Life, invites musicians to apply to its online incubator program – the Musician Changemaker Accelerator (MCA) Academy – starting August 12, 2024.

The MCA is a fully underwritten 6.5-month social change business accelerator (6 weeks of instruction, followed by 20 weeks of coaching; August 12, 2024-February 7, 2025) for 10 competitively selected socially conscious musicians from around the country. Taught and facilitated by experts in the music, nonprofit, business and entertainment industries, musician participants come away with a concrete plan for their community change idea, local partner connections, program development skills and funding to execute their projects.

Participating musicians will receive cash and services worth $7500 including: a $500 participation stipend, weekly instructional training in program and grants development, networking sessions with like-minded entrepreneurial artists and thought leaders, 30+ hours of intensive 1:1 coaching, and $2,000 matching seed funding and $500 community partner stipend to launch a program pilot. Candidates will be selected based on their musical talent and their enterprising idea for a music-driven social change program in their community.
