Show Me The Money!

If you’re scratching your head about how to make big Instagram money out of your cat, or have spent an entire afternoon googling “what is bitcoin?”, then now might be the time to look at some upcoming opportunities available for artists.

We’ve complied a brief list of grants, funds and paid opportunities kicking about at the moment. So, make yourself a cuppa and have a read over the opportunities below.

If you’ve presented at the Festival in the past and are in need of a support letter, please get in touch – we’re always happy to provide references or testimonials for artists whose work we know well.

And lastly, take care of yourselves. We hope the opportunities below bring you some assistance, excitement, or a little bit of hope – because, in the words of our favourite online yoga teacher, a little can go a long way.
