Funding Opportunity for Young Island Creatives
The 2020 Mike Howley Trust awards are now open for applications.
Mike Howley, who worked for many years as Director of Cultural Services for the Isle of Wight Council, died in May 2013, leaving part of his estate “for the specific benefit of aspiring young actors, musicians, dancers and writers, between the ages of 18 and 30, living on the Isle of Wight”.
Trustees welcome applications from people within the stated age range and art forms for investment in areas such as training, equipment, marketing & promotion, recording, rehearsal space, staging, publishing costs, or simply time to create. If you fit the bill and have an idea you are burning to put into action, we would like to hear from you.
Due to the advent of the coronavirus and our current state of lockdown, we will be looking at all applications digitally and via email this year.
Please read the guidelines carefully and return your application form to Megan at firstname.lastname@example.org by Fri 24 April 2020, together with a short video about your project – no longer than 2 minutes.. This can be an example of your work if you wish. Please also contact Megan if you have any questions.
The selection panel will look at all submitted applications and contact you if they have any questions.
We hope to be able to let you know if you have been successful by Monday 4 May.
