Over the past few months, we've all been trying to adapt our practices to the COVID-19 pandemic and to new social distancing norms. We're slowly starting to create our new normal, and things are starting up again, but a lot of us are still struggling… financially.
At SSSHAKE, our mission has always been to support creatives and their practices, no matter their experience or professional status. We know it's not easy to make a living working in the creative industries, so we thought we'd cut down your research time and find eligible grants for you, so you can spend more time creating and less time on the annoying stuff!
Hopefully, you're already receiving some kind of support from the UK's COVID-19 financial support schemes. But, unfortunately, a lot of creatives fall into a kind of limbo state, where they don't fit into any of the schemes set in place by the government. If that sounds like you, don't worry, there are many other organisations and programmes offering their support during these times.
We've compiled a list of grants and prizes available to UK residents, which you can filter by creative industry, to make sure you're seeing grants that are relevant to your practice. We'll be doing our best to keep this list up-to-date with the latest grants and initiatives to support creatives around the UK. All grants listed are open for applications and are automatically removed after the deadline. If you need help with your applications, Gasworks is kindly offering writing support and feedback until Sunday, 31st May, 2020.
We hope these can help some of you, no matter how big or small. Stay safe, stay strong, stay positive!
