The British Council Creative Enterprise Support Programme delivers training, mentoring and supports the business development of young and emerging musicians in Ghana.

The 2021/2022 CESP was delivered by Impact Hub Accra (IHA), University of the Arts London (UAL), and Culture Forward, taking sixty (60) music creatives through three stages of joint provided enterprise support.

Stage 1: Enterprise Support

A two-week intensive training for 60 music entrepreneurs selected applicants which included music business training tailored to the needs of the Ghanaian sector

Stage 2: Incubation

A 3-month incubation programme for 30 music entrepreneurs selected from music entrepreneurs from stage 1. This stage provided access to studio, workspace, equipment within the workspace (e.g., for producing new work, music, editing, etc.), training, business support, podcasting, listening sessions and mentoring

Stage 3: Showcase

There would be a showcase of 15 participants identified by the mentors, implementing partners, and British Council who would be supported to create/ refine original content and produce promotional materials of their work to be presented at the final showcase event.

 Stage 4: Grants

10 exceptional music professionals were selected from the 15, to implement and scale up their strategies in Ghana during the final “pay it forward” event.
