Young Island creatives are invited to apply for funding of up to £5,000 from the Mike Howley Trust 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.
Due to the terms of this Trust, funding is not available for visual artists. If you fit the bill and have an idea you are burning to put into action, the Trust would love to hear from you.
This year’s application process will take place in the form of written applications, however, the Trust welcomes the opportunity to arrange for you to apply in an alternative format if you require.
If you are thinking of applying and feel you need to discuss your idea or require support with the application process, please get in touch with a member of the Arts Team via [email protected] before the 15th of June.
The deadline for applications is midnight on Tuesday 15th June 2021. Please email [email protected] to see the guidelines and receive your application form.
