TL Launches £10,000 fund to support local artistsFri 26 June 2020
Go DigiTL provides one-off microgrants of up to £750 to help local musicians and dance artists create work in the digital world.
Successful applicants will be able to use the grant to invest in new equipment, professional support services or promotional materials, and will receive practical support to showcase their work online.
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 onto building new and imaginative platforms to present their work. Trinity Laban wants to support artists who are adapting to this challenge and relieve some of the financial burden.
Open to music and dance artists living in Lewisham and Greenwich, Go DigiTL strengthens artistic relationships between Trinity Laban and the local community and promotes a conversation around post-pandemic artistic practice.
Joe Townsend, Head of CoLab and BA Music Performance & Industry Programme Leader, comments –
“The Go DigiTL Microgrants offer crucial financial support and mentoring that will allow independent local music and dance artists to realise their ideas and contribute to the fast-changing digital landscape.”
Applications are now open and will close on Monday 13 July 2020 with awards announced week commencing 20 July 2020.
