APPLY TO THE DORSET AND BCP ARTISTS’ EMERGENCY FUND; OR SUPPORT THE CROWDFUNDER

Many small independent artists, musicians and creatives have been severely impacted by the CoviD-19 pandemic. Wave is proud to be a contributor and partner on this pan-Dorset initiative by major arts and cultural organisations across Bournemouth, Christchurch, Poole (BCP) and Dorset, to support artists impacted by the Covid pandemic who have fallen between the cracks of support package available. Artists can apply for up to £500.

  • Round 1 closed on 22 May 2020
  • Round 2 closes Friday 5 June 2020 at midday
  • Round 3 closes Friday 19 June 2020 at midday

The fund is being administered by our friends at B-Side, who have also done the lion’s share of organising. More details, and how to apply, can be found by following this link…

IF YOU DON’T NEED SUPPORT, PLEASE CONSIDER DONATING TO THE CROWDFUNDER CAMPAIGN

The Hardship fund has already had a huge number of applications but we’re keen to continue to be able to support artists after Round 3. So, if you feel you are able to contribute to our Crowdfunder to further raise funds to support artists, please donate via our Crowdfunder here.

The more donations we get, the more support we can give. The deadline to donate to our Crowdfunder is 29th June 2020 at 12:00pm
