We’re making some changes

To help make sure you’re paying yourself fairly, especially during the cost of living crisis, we’re increasing how much you can apply for.

Developing your Creative Practice is a very competitive fund, so we’re making some other changes too, so you can decide when is the right time for you to apply, and to give everyone a fair chance of receiving funding.
