The Film and TV Charity have opened a new fund, taking the form of “BAME community grants”.
The grants offer between £300 up to a maximum of £3,500 for projects that focus on bringing people together to:
- Share experiences
- Break down barriers and amplify underrepresented voices
- Support access and career development
- Provide education around issues such as discrimination and mental health
- Promote industry engagement with work created by Black, Asian or ethnic minority talent
The activity must take place between September – December 2020.
If you’re interested in discussing these, email Lucy Powell at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Film and TV Charity also provides mental wellbeing services, which are free to everyone in the industry.
You can find more information and apply at www.filmtvcharity.org.uk/bame-community-grants. The deadline is 5pm 28th August 2020.
