Education and outreach

Meet the team

We're here to talk about PRS for Music: who we are, what we do, how we work, why we're here and who we are here for. We participate in many industry events throughout the year, give talks in colleges and universities, and even run our own events. We're also proactive in supporting new talent and helping emerging writers to see how the industry and PRS for Music can work for them.
