After the success of the last two rounds of funding, Sky Arts and Ideas Tap are once again offering five young people 30,000 each as part of the Sky Arts Ignition: Futures Fund. If you're aged 18-30 and have a music or arts project that needs funding, maybe this is the opportunity you've been waiting for!
The fund is designed to develop creative practice and help take the work of the successful applicants to the next level. Recipients of the fund will be paired with a mentor from Sky to help develop their networks, skills and knowledge in the arts and the commercial sector.
This year, five winners will be selected, and the fund is open to applications in the following fields:
- Performing arts
- Visual art
- Creative producing
