Deadline: 20 April 2020

Posted: 10/03/2022

During this difficult period of physical distancing we want to encourage ways of staying socially connected and increasing solidarity.
We are looking for creative ways for artists to move their practice to digital formats, supporting them to generate new ideas and to reach out to participants who are feeling isolated. We are offering artists seed funding of £500-£1000 which we hope will allow you to test your idea whilst collaborating with and complementing Phakama’s vision: To empower people to be the fullest version of themselves, where participation in, rather
than mastery of, the world is celebrated.
