NYMAZ is pleased to announce that it is participating in Prosper, a business support programme from Creative United. Prosper is designed to improve confidence and capabilities within business in the arts, museums and galleries. The programme is working with 70 businesses to help increase the resilience and investment across the sector.
Prosper is an Arts Council England (ACE) - supported programme run by Creative United. Other Prosper partners include Arts Marketing Association, Access: The Foundation for Social Investment, Centre for Business in Society at Coventry University, Creative Scotland and Esmee Fairbairn Foundation.

70 organisations are participating, chosen from over 250 applications.
NYMAZ will receive 1-to-1 sessions with a designated business advisor plus access to masterclasses, workshops, webinars and meet ups. This business development support will focus on the development potential of the Connect: Resound project, encompassing live online music activity from instrumental tuition and live music broadcasts, to professional development. The aim is to explore sustainable strategies for developing this area of our work, in order to create more opportunities for participation in music.
