Music: Leeds


Leeds Beckett University’s research has contributed to the development of Music: Leeds, a project designed to respond to the needs, issues and opportunities for SMEs, larger organisations and microbusinesses within the Leeds region’s music sector. Leeds Beckett University’s research collaboration with Music: Leeds has impacted the music and cultural sector of local authorities by contributing to Leeds City Council’s delivery of their Culture Strategy and programme for a year of culture in 2023, and collaborating with the Leeds City Region LEP, local and Core Cities local authorities. Research conducted in the Leeds music sector by Leeds Beckett University and Music: Leeds has also impacted the strategy of national music organisations such as the Association of Independent Music (AIM) and PRS Foundation (PRSF) who implemented Music: Leeds’s model for decentralised outreach programs.
