Help Musicians and the Musicians’ Union are teaming up to map the total population of musicians to discover what musicians’ lives and careers look like. The results will allow organisations across the industry to have the insight they need to support today’s community of musicians, as well as musicians of the future.
The Census is open to anyone considering themselves to be a musician in the UK who earns an income from music or plans to earn an income from music in future. Whether you’re a performer, teacher, studio engineer, composer, whatever your role, they want to hear from the widest group possible.
The Census is being supported by a huge number of organisations across the sector who have input into the project and will also benefit from its insight including; Arts Council England, Association for Electronic Music (AFEM), Association of British Orchestras, Attitude is Everything, Black Lives in Music (BLiM), Drake Music Org, Drake Music Scotland, English Folk Dance and Song Society (EFDSS), Featured Artists Coalition, Ivors Academy, Music Managers Forum, PiPA, PPL, PRS Foundation, Punch Records, Royal Society of Musicians of Great Britain (RSM), Safe In Sound in NI, She Said So, The F List, The Independent Society of Musicians (ISM), UK Music
