Equipment will be provided such as laptops with DAWs, a range of analogue hardware, DJ equipment and much more.
The application page explains: “Whilst we are accepting applications from everyone, we particularly encourage applications from QTIBPOC / global majority, disabled and other groups underrepresented in the music industry.”
Rye Wax has been open for almost 10 years in Copeland Park, Peckham with an ethos to shine a light on underrepresented or marginalised music and “providing a space for countercultural movements to flourish.”
