Arts Council Surgery

BlackFest organised and co-ordinated an amazing opportunity for artists supporting their careers to the next stages of development providing open surgeries with Arts Council England at Hope Street Theatre.

Artists were able to meet and discuss their aspirations with Relationship Managers Nikki Harrison and Peter Courtie Relationship Manager in Theatre.

The session involved a 30-minute presentation and limited 20-minute slots for information on Project Grants and streams of funding and support available at Arts Council England for creatives.

7 artists took advantage of the opportunity with 2 artists that received funding thereafter. We are serious about a sustained career and development of individual projects and growth in the arts for artists involved with our platform!

Here’s what our artists had to say

“Amazing Thank you.”
“I really needed that.”
“My project is ready I just need to go for it.”
“I love what you are doing.”
 ‘You’ve ignited the sense of real togetherness and support for Black artists again in Liverpool.’
