£1,500 OF FUNDING AVAILABLE FOR YOUNG ARTISTS THANKS TO THE MIKE HOWLEY TRUST

MikehowleytrustThe Trustees of the Mike Howley Trust are welcoming young Island creatives to apply for up to £1,500 to help them realise their artistic ambitions.

Mike Howley, who worked for many years as Director of Cultural Services for the Isle of Wight Council, died in May 2013, leaving part of his estate “for the specific benefit of aspiring young actors, musicians, dancers, and writers, between the ages of 18 and 30, living on the Isle of Wight”.

The fund is for investment in areas such as training, equipment, marketing & promotion, recording, rehearsal space, staging, publishing costs, or simply time to create. Funds are available for those involved in dance/movement, theatre/puppetry, film/video, creative writing/spoken word, music, and creative technical support.
