Posted: 10/03/2022

If you’re aged between 16-25 and have a creative project that could do with a cash injection, this is the fund for you. We’re offering 10 projects £1,000 each, to help get them off the ground.

In the past we’ve funded everything from dance and film projects to music videos and photography collectives. Whatever creative field you work in, we’ll consider your application. For tips on how NOT to apply, read our article on five common Ideas Fund application mistakes.

Here’s the boring bit: you MUST read the Ts&Cs in full before you apply, and the information below the How to Respond tab. We get loads of ineligible applications where people haven’t read the terms.
