Youth Cultural Life Fund is now open for young people 

TMC are happy to announce that the second round of the Youth Cultural Life Fund is now open! Applications are open for young people aged 14 – 21 years old, who wish to use their creative skills to make a positive change in their community during these challenging times. 

The Youth Cultural Life Fund invites young people to think of a creative idea that tackles some of the challenges we are facing now, in our lives and in our communities. How this is done is completely up to the young people, but should be about using their creativity. Their idea should help to bring about positive social change! 

Through the Youth Cultural Life Fund, TMC will:  

  • Award up to 50 bursaries to young people between now and March 2021  
  • Award bursaries of up to £250.00 for young people 14-17  
  • Award bursaries of up to £500.00 for young people 18-21  
  • Give young people the opportunity to reflect on Covid-19 and apply their creative skills to make positive change in their community  
  • Offer support from The Mighty Creatives’ ‘Creative Coaches’ and staff team to help develop their response 

Applicants must be aged between 14 and 21 years old and living in the East Midlands.

TMC also encourage  applications from adults on behalf of a young person who may be vulnerable, has additional needs or who cannot access the online form themselves.

The deadline for applications is Wednesday 28th October 2020 at 9am.
