#DYCP

Arts Council England is chatting live on Twitter about their funding programmes. Today it’s #DYCP – Developing Your Creative Practice fund.

The fund has got over £14 million pounds to invest in artists over a 4 year period. After downloading a spreadsheet of the 106 winners from the first round of funding, I decided to look closely at who won and what they’re planning to do.

The process of applying for funding has seemed such an impossible mountain, it’s only after a few years of playing at applying for funding that I’m going to try to understand how and why the system works the way it does.

I can already see there’s loads of infighting and limited resources to meet demand.

It can’t hurt to tune into to the conversation. Today on Twitter at 11AM it’s #DYCP.

See you there.
