The Gospel Music Industry Alliance (G.M.I.A) – the UK’s gospel music governing body, meets the needs of the community is set to deliver a range of workshops aimed at providing key information, support and services beneficial to the development of artists, musicians and industry personnel.

As well as aligning with GMIA objectives, these workshops address the publics’ request from the Town Hall meeting.

We have been connecting with music organisations and funding bodies to deliver highly beneficial workshops to make our community aware of the funds and support available, provide funding guidance and strengthen project applications. It’s beyond time for the Gospel community to tap into resources that push their music careers forward”.
