Yes absolutely! We’re really keen to help artists to put in a strong application, here are some of the ways we’re doing that:
1) Make Work Information Session. Monday 22 March 12am to 1pm.
This will be an open group session where we will introduce you to the grants available, the eligibility criteria and the application process, and answer any questions you might have. Register here.

2) Make Work: Building Your Budget with Jenny Sullivan. Friday 26 March 1.30pm to 3pm.
This will be an open group session where independent Producer Jenny Sullivan will help you to look into how to cost up a creative project. What to include, where to find prices, things to consider, ensuring fair pay – and how to present this information on our budget template. Register here.
3) 1-2-1 Support Sessions:
We offer applicants initial 30 minute meetings with any of this team. Most of the time that is enough to get the guidance people need, but you can talk with them about any additional support or input you might need from BPH in order to develop your application. BPH has a team of three specialists available for you to consult with throughout the application process:
Independent Producer, Jenny Sullivan is available for artist and creative 1-2-1s: discussing people’s ideas, giving guidance from a producer perspective, helping answer questions, identifying areas that need strengthening. Advising on the application process, how to write your application, and reading and giving feedback.
Access Champion, Vicky Ackroyd is available to provide specialist support and advice to disabled applicants, or to any applicants who have questions or want guidance about being inclusive in their projects.
Production Manager , Ben Pugh is available for artist and creative 1-2-1s, for discussing people’s ideas, giving guidance from a Production, technical and delivery perspective, helping answer questions, understanding costs, and identifying areas that need strengthening.
