Future’s Venture have now funded our first wave of artists, supporting 5 projects in total this year. Two of the projects are developmental, enabling young artists to build their practice and ideas to a stage ready for future funding activity. A further three projects are fully developed programmes across a range of art forms. Our two development projects each receive £5,000 in funding, and our full projects received £24,000, £24,725 and £26,570 respectively. Further information of funded artists will be published as their works develops over the coming year.
Trustees met on the 7th and 8th of June 2016 to look at how we allocate funds in future rounds, and how we can simplify our processes. Once this has been agreed, we will post details here of how the second round will be managed.
