Creative Freelancers Exchange – Funding in the current COVID landscape

A Culture Mile session, led by Sarah Waldron.

Are you a creative freelancer living or working in the Culture Mile area? Would you like to exchange with other local creative freelancers, network and refine your skills?

COVID-19 has brought change, uncertainty and new ways of working for all sectors and we recognise this has significantly impacted freelancers in the creative industries. What have we learned and where are we now?

What’s changed in the arts funding landscape over the past year? Where can creatives go to look for funding, and what are some of the key things to include or avoid in your applications?

Freelance project developer & bid writer Sarah Waldron gives us her guide navigating fundraising in our current situation.
