Supported Artists


The Big Imaginations ArtistImagination Fund is open to all artists and companies developing or creating performance for young audiences in the Big Imaginations catchment area (list of organisations and locations can be found here).


Applicants are able to apply for between £1k and £5k to support the creation, development or R&D for live performance that seeks to work with or be presented for children between 0-11 years old. Big Imaginations is particularly interested in work by diverse artists or made for diverse audiences. Please tell us about the diversity of your project in your application.


Artists selected will be supported for 18 months as a cohort with additional support of training and development opportunities. Additionally, artists will have access to extra services and support from their host Big Imaginations organisation, which could include access to space, support on funding applications and mentoring from core team members.


We will share any opportunities as they come up. All of our members can offer different things for artists, from programming the shows to offering mentoring or rehearsal space.  Head to our members page for more information.
