These are extremely challenging and uncertain times – public health is a priority as we face huge changes to our lives and the lives of our families and friends. We recognise the serious personal and professional impacts for the creative sector and the uncertainty surrounding this.

Many sectoral agencies and organisations are working hard to develop and provide support, and we aim to keep you up to date through sharing this information and developing our own programme of support as best we can.   Please subscribe to our weekly e-bulletin and social media for the latest local and national updates, including targeted funding and advice.
