We want to improve our support for individual creative and cultural practitioners, especially at the start of their career, so we can safeguard the future of our industry. We’re looking for organisations, artists, events, initiatives and others to apply for our funding and help us achieve our strategy, Let’s Create.

There is an understanding that is reached with the material as a result of handling it, which facilitates one’s thought processes.
