Grand Plan is a community funding initiative set up to overcome some of the structural barriers which contribute to an under-representation of artists and creative people of colour in British arts & culture.
They are awarding three no-strings-attached grants of £1,000 every month to creative people of colour to realise any kind of cultural project.
It can be anything: poetry, paintings, fashion, zines, music, food, flowers, photographs — whatever you want.
Who can apply?
Artists and creatives who identify as people of colour and are based in the UK. You need to be at least 18 years old. There’s no maximum age.
We all want to make it.
Make it in our chosen career. Maybe make it big.
Sometimes perhaps just make it to pay day.
But whatever our ambition, what unites us all is the desire to thrive, be recognised – and be supported.
And that’s what Lambeth’s Creative Enterprise Zone is all about. Supporting creative people to do amazing creative things without having to leave our amazingly creative corner of south London.
Because we all want to make it – of course – but more than that, we want to Make It in Brixton.
