Sadly, we have just heard that IdeasTap will be closing on Tuesday 2 June.
After six years IdeasTap will be closing as the
charity simply doesn’t have the funding to continue.
They say, ‘we’ve explored every avenue we believe possible. From trusts and foundations to government departments, the Arts Council to corporate sponsorship, on-site advertising to wealthy individuals, and much more besides. We have had some success – but nowhere near enough to support us in the long term. Sadly, it is a very tough funding environment for the arts.’
Until 2 June, you’ll still be
able to enter competitions, support crowdfunding projects, book for Spa events,
browse jobs and read our magazine as usual. They want to go out with a bang so they’ll be offering some extra special prizes right up until the end.
What happens next? They’ve put
together some FAQs, from data
protection to portfolios to outstanding prizes and hope they have covered any questions you might have.
