Organisations applying must be UK Registered Charities in the arts sector, delivering high quality and professional work with a strong track record.

Programmes eligible for support will be designed for early-stage professionals trained to the highest level and/or with equivalent relevant experience.

Priority will be given to applications where the programmes provide an opportunity or opportunities for meaningful performance.
