Applications Open For Oleg Prokofiev Trust Grants

The grants, which range between ₤200 and ₤5000 in value, are intended to support projects which advance the legacy of Sergei Prokofiev


The London-based Oleg Prokofiev Trust is now accepting applications for its 2021 round of grants. The trust was established in memory of Sergei Prokofiev's son Oleg — an artist, sculptor, and poet who settled in the UK.

Applications are due on November 15, and applicants will be notified of the outcome by December 15.

The intended purpose of the grants is as follows:

  • To support small organizations or projects that require a grant or grants to support the public-performance costs of a concert, a recital, ballet, opera, or orchestral work, particularly if it is by Sergei Prokofiev. Applications are particularly welcome for the performance of lesser-known or performed pieces of music.

  • To support small music festivals particularly where Prokofiev music/and or other Russian classical music will be performed.

  • To support the provision of conferences, exhibitions or lectures, and possibly other educational activities, particularly if it is related to the music and life of Sergei Prokofiev.

  • To support the publishing and distribution of books, pamphlets, journals, films, recordings, and instructional matter on any media, particularly if it is in relation to the music and life of Sergei Prokofiev.

This year the trust has also launched a new grant in the form of the Rupert Prokofiev Award. Rupert Prokofiev, who was a former trustee and the grandson of Sergei Prokofiev, lived with a rare neurodegenerative disability known as Ataxia-Telangiectasia, and sadly passed away in 2017. He was a campaigner for disabled rights and a committed fundraiser for the A-T Society, who worked to support young people living with the disease.

The trust's new award will celebrate Rupert's life by awarding ₤5000 to an applicant planning performances, compositions, recordings, research, workshops, or publications that will benefit people who live with a disability.

All information pertaining to the grants can be found on the trust's website.
