In the spirit of the season, Sky Arts is offering five young artists £30,000 each to fund their work for a full year as part of the Sky Arts Ignition: Futures Fund – in association with IdeasTap.
The fund is designed to help bridge the gap between formal education and becoming a working artist. The Sky Arts Ignition: Futures Fund is open to individual artists working in visual art, theatre, performance art, film, music, dance or literature.
With all the creative industries based in Digbeth and neighbouring Eastside, this funding could offer a budding young artist the springboard needed to become a fully-fledged member of the Digbeth art community!
To apply, you must be an IdeasTap member aged 18-30 on 24th February 2012 and be based in either the UK or Ireland. It’s free to become an IdeasTap member and just takes a few minutes to sign up. Two winners will be selected during this round of funding.
Visit the website for more information about this funding, and ensure to promote this to anyone who may be interested. Applications close at 5pm on Monday 24th February 2012.
