Black Artist Grant!✨

✨ANNOUNCEMENT! ✨

We’re excited to reveal that Halcyon is a selector for The Black Artists Grant for the next three months! We’ve teamed up with @creativedebuts for this amazing opportunity! 

The Black Artists Grant is £2,000 each month which will be split between four different Black creatives in the UK, receiving £500 each. 

If you would like to flag your work to us and put yourself forward, please send an email to bag@halcyonmaguk.com 

It would be helpful if your email could contain your name, contact information and some images of what you make or do – that might be via attachments, or a link to a website or other online portfolio (this can be Instagram for example, whatever you have available). 

The BAG is no-strings attached financial support to help the selected creatives in whatever they want – be that make new work, buy equipment or materials, travel, research, visit exhibitions or conferences, or to even just cover some life expenses. This is specifically for Black artists; not politically black, not POC or BAME. There is no deadline, no age limit, and the grant does not expect any outcomes or reporting.

This is a fantastic opportunity for up and coming Black creatives as the arts are a cornerstone of society which need better representation across the board. Black creatives need room to create without the financial, institutional and societal barriers that they face. Grants are a small step towards correcting the financial aspects of these challenges. Therefore we are honoured to be a part of this project.

We’ll be announcing the recipients on our Instagram and Twitter so make sure to follow us – @halcyonmaguk

Massive thank you to @umbrellaldn @mostwantedwines @fabrixcap for matching the funding commitment ✨
