Guildhall Futures Fund
Over the last two years, the world has changed dramatically. As the industry begins to rebuild itself from the ground up, many artists face more challenges than ever before. Guildhall Futures is a brand new funding scheme, created with the purpose of providing professional support to our alumni community in order to address issues raised during this time of turmoil. Following the successful launch of the scheme in September 2021, we are now pleased to announce that our third round of funding is now open for applications.
About The Fund
Eligible applicants are invited to apply for funding between £500-£3,000 with the intention for this to support the advancement of creative practice and creative careers. It is intended to support artists to consider, adapt and redefine their practice in line with a rapidly shifting arts industry. It is designed to be flexible to support a range of professional and artistic development activity broadly related to the disciplines of Music, Drama and Production Arts.
