→ We are specifically about LIVE arts: so we can’t fund or support artists or projects that are solely about none-live forms: digital / film / screen, visual arts, recorded music, etc.
→ We can’t provide ad-hoc funding for creative projects or events: This is because we need to be transparent and fair about who gets funded to do what, so there always needs to be an open and inclusive process. We mainly use our Spare Bob and Make Work rounds for this.
→ If your idea doesn’t really fit with those strands, we will help in other ways: such as identifying other funders, advising on funding applications, helping you develop a plan, finding partners, etc.
→ We try to be really clear about each of our opportunities, and we always welcome and respond to feedback.
