a-n announces three programmes of financial support for artists and arts organisers

To help support artists whose livelihoods have been impacted by Coronavirus Covid-19, a-n has announced three programmes of financial support for both artists and arts organisers:

–  For a-n Artist members, the application for the next round of a-n Artist Bursaries has been brought forward, which will focus on giving artists time and space to continue to make work. Members will be informed by email.

– For artists and arts organisers based in England, a-n is working with Arts Council England to distribute £300,000 of financial support for artists and arts organisers who make exhibitions happen. That includes (but is not limited to) self-employed art handlers, technicians, art installers, conservators and restorers, and those who help other artists in the production of their work. Applications will be open soon – follow a-n on social media for updates.

– Arts Council England is also offering financial support for artists, creative practitioners and freelancers with £20 million available to individuals working in the cultural sector. Artists and creative practitioners will be able to apply for grants of up to £2,500 if they have a track record in publicly funded culture.
