Artist resources

We do our best to meet, support and respond to the needs of a wide range of artists. We can’t always do that in person, so we’ve created this space on our website to offer useful advice (we hope) that you can access directly. Below, you’ll find handy resources from marketing toolkits to advice on applying for funding. Keep an eye on this page for updates.

If you’ve got any ideas about what you’d like to see on this page, give us a shout and we’ll see what we can do.
