A £10,000 fund that supported local musicians and dance artists to create work in the digital world.

Through one-off microgrants of up to £750, the Go DigiTL scheme strengthened artistic relationships between Trinity Laban and the wider community.

Go DigiTL Microgrants

The economic impact of the Covid-19 pandemic has cut many of the typical income streams for the performing arts industry and has focussed artists on building new and imaginative platforms to present their work.

By offering crucial financial support and mentoring, Go DigiTL 2020 supported independent artists living in Lewisham and Greenwich to realise their ideas, adapt to the challenges and contribute to the fast-changing digital landscape.

The microgrants scheme was designed to nurture creative innovation, strengthen artistic relationships between Trinity Laban and the local community, and promote a conversation around post-pandemic artistic practice.

Chosen by a panel of TL dance and music staff, successful applicants used the grant to invest in new equipment, professional support services and promotional materials, and received practical support to showcase their work online.
