Joe FranklandGB

CEO of PRS Foundation

Widely respected as an inclusive, collaborative and proactive funding body, PRS Foundation supports an exceptional range of new music activity through direct grants to music creators and through support for pioneering organisations, including venues, festivals, promoters and other talent development organisations.

5 out of the last 6 Mercury Prize winners have received PRS Foundation support at crucial career moments and the charity has supported BRITS, Ivors Composer Award, AIM and RPS Award-winners - perhaps more than anything demonstrating how timely investment in exciting, diverse and innovative talent works to produce critically acclaimed new music and to sustain music creator careers in the UK and internationally.

PRS Foundation co-founded the global gender equality initiative Keychange and launched the POWER UP initiative which tackles anti-Black racism in music.
