It’s Tuesday 18th September, and we’re delighted to announce that we’re open again for funding applications! This is our sixth round of funding since we launched in 2013, and if you’re creating a project using sound or music for social good that needs funding, we’d love to hear from you.
Are you involved in creative music making that makes a positive impact on people’s lives, or looking for extra funding to start new projects or extend your work? If you’re based in Cambridgeshire and you know of or run a local, music-based, project that needs support, we want to hear from you.
We are HUGELY grateful to the lovely Claire Debenham for running the Cambridge Half Marathon for us in March and raising a whopping £500 as a result, not to mention the fact that she was just recovering from a bout of nasty flu!
A Dosoco grant in 2015 enabled Cambridge Community Arts to expand its range of courses for adult learners to include guitar lessons. To date 60 people have benefited from the opportunity, with the grant supporting two of our key aims – music access and music education. In our first 'insider' case study, we take a look at the brilliant work that CCA carries out, and how our funding has helped.
We've just awarded six more grants, totalling over £3000, to Cambridgeshire based projects using music for social good. Click through to find out more about them and the fabulous work they're doing. And it looks like we may have just raised another £1500... more on that soon!
A project using sound-enhanced tennis balls to enable visually impaired people to play tennis is just one of four fantastic Cambridgeshire-based projects that we've been lucky enough to support through our third round of Dosoco funding - announced at the latest Dowsing Sound Collective gig on 25 July (pictured) - with a combined total of £2000.

We're delighted to now be open for applications for our third round of funding… and this time we’re focusing on young people. Schools, families and individual young people are all encouraged to take part and applications can be as creative as possible.
We were absolutely thrilled to announce - on Sunday 14th December at The Dowsing Sound Collective's Christmas Cocktail gig in the Cambridge Corn Exchange - the recipients of our second round of grants, totalling just under £4000!
