Arts - Nurturing Young Professionals
Idlewild Trust awards around £140,000 each year. They support programmes that address the lack of opportunities for young professional musicians, dancers, actors, writers, artists and those involved creatively in the arts, particularly at an early stage in their career.
Aim: To improve opportunities for young professionals working creatively in the arts, particularly at an early stage in their careers.
How: Will consider programmes that encourage and nurture the talent of young professional musicians, dancers, actors, writers and artists in the performing, fine and applied arts aged 16 and over. Programmes need to be run by professional organisations that are UK registered charities with a strong track-record.
Idlewild Trust will also consider programmes of high quality for other young professionals working creatively within the performing, fine and applied arts including composers, curators and theatre-makers (directors, designers, producers, writers and choreographers).
We make decisions about grants twice a year. Here are our deadlines:
7 February 2019 (midnight) for a decision in May 2019
5 September 2019 (midnight) for a decision in November 2019
We cannot fund projects that are completed by the time of our decision.
