Over the summer we re-purposed our funding in order to invest in the cultural sector to help support them to innovate in their practice and in particular their digital work with children and young people aged 0-25yrs.

Thirteen bursaries were gifted to individual artists and smaller arts and cultural organisations to use over the next 6 – 12 months for research and development work including training.

The R&D bursary was developed to enable these groups to look at new ways of developing artistic and creative practice in relation to their work with children and young people.

The bursaries were awarded to:

  • Beth Kapila
  • Bold Text Playwrights
  • Deaf Explorer CIC
  • Jake Jarvis
  • Linden Dance Company
  • Mercurial Dance
  • Quartermasters
  • Rachel Gillies
  • Secret City Arts
  • The Company Ltd: Harmeet Chagger-Khan & Janette Bushell
  • The Gap Arts Project
  • The Other Way Works
  • Tina Hofman
