promote singer songwriters and the art of songwriting. We have a large
writing & performing their own songs in the Nottingham area. We
provide local entertainment, create opportunities, encourage a community
of singer songwriters, develop individuals, and foster local talent
establishing a suitable environment in which to harness the potential
synergies within the singer songwriting community.
Established in 1999, NSI has developed
a highly acclaimed presence on the World Wide
Web, helped & encouraged over 40 singer songwriters in the Nottingham
participated in 36 events, which includes organising & promoting
13 singer songwriter
showcase concerts, 12 public access meetings, and 5 singer songwriter
open mic nights.
Now in our 3rd year, with the experience
we have acquired, & the overwhelmingly positive
feedback we have received, we have identified a need to consolidate
our present operation & expand our current activities to include;
the good reputation of Nottingham, England, UK, - & the
singer songwriters who perform there.
2- attracting more world class singer songwriters to perform in
Nottingham, England, UK.
3- attracting increased membership to NSI.
4- promoting local singer songwriters nationally (& internationally)
as well as locally.
5- raising public awareness of local, national, & international
issues which affect singer songwriters & local events which feature
6- building stronger links with local, national, & international
7- improving & expanding the NSI online resource &
platform facilities for singer songwriters.
8- acquiring funds from local, national & international
sponsors in order to achieve these objectives.
NSI was set-up & run on a purely
voluntary basis but, with the increased success of the
venture, it now requires a more formal & sustained administration.
is required to part-fund the administration & management of NSI
over the next 3 years,
and a further £12,000 is needed to facilitate the expansion
of our current operations.
We are approaching successful businesses,
prominent individuals and organisations
within relevant industries, and large employers in the Nottingham
area as well as all the obvious funding bodies. We very much hope
you will consider helping us, in some way.
