Arts funding in the UK is available for all artists, whatever their background. But many working-class artists feel excluded by the application process. This two-hour workshop with Sabrina Mahfouz aims to help working class artists working in any artform to get their idea for a project application-ready, demystifying the process and discussing your plans. It helps if you have an idea in mind, but it’s not a prerequisite for attendance.
This workshop is part of a larger project to celebrate working-class artists working today, and acknowledge both their massive contribution to the arts, and the unique hurdles they face in the arts industry.
Sabrina Mahfouz is a British Egyptian playwright, poet and screenwriter. She is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature and the recipient of the 2018 King’s Alumni Arts and Culture Award, a Sky Arts Academy Award for Poetry and a Fringe First Award. Mahfouz is currently writing the biopic of legendary ‘Godfather of Grime’, Wiley, for Pulse Films. Visit her website using this link for further information.
