Gane Trust hardship fund

Gane Trust Hardship Fund

£500 bursaries available for creative practitioners in financial need.

The Cube Microplex is working in partnership with Tobacco Factory Theatres to administer a hardship fund for artists and arts-workers living in the Bristol area. This fund has been generously donated by The Gane Trust to assist creative practitioners who are currently experiencing financial hardship due to Covid-19.

The priority is to offer some monetary support to those who have lost work and income and are without a significant safety net.

Bursaries of £500 will be distributed to 80 applicants (£40,000 total fund).

All applicants must be a freelancer with a Unique Tax Reference (UTR) number and living in or around Bristol.

The deadline for applications is Tuesday 09 June 2020. We will be responding with a decision by 23 June.
