Freelands Foundation: Freelands Foundation Emergency Fund


The Freelands Foundation is committed to supporting artists, organisations, audiences and staff during the Covid-19 crisis. More than ever, these extraordinarily challenging times have shone a light on the transformative power of the arts and creativity, inspiring individuals and connecting communities across the UK.

Therefore, the Foundation is pleased to announce that it has now committed a total of £3m in emergency funds to support artists and freelance creative practitioners in urgent need of financial support as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic across the four nations of the UK.
The Foundation has partnered with a-n The Artists Information Company to set up a new £1.5m Freelands Foundation Emergency Fund, for artists and freelancers in the visual arts sector living in England and Northern Ireland. Open from Thursday 7 May, the new fund will support grants of £1500 to £2500 per person, assessed by need, with £1 million going to those living in England and £500k to those in Northern Ireland.
The new fund follows a £1m contribution to the Creative Scotland Bridging Bursary and £500k to the Arts Council of Wales Urgent Relief Fund for Individuals.
Meanwhile, we are in ongoing conversation with all our current partners to determine on a case-by-case basis how best to support their organisations and projects through this difficult period.
The health and well-being of our staff, artists and visitors is our priority so the Regent’s Park Road gallery will remain closed, in accordance with government guidelines, until we are advised that it is safe to reopen to the public. However, our work continues on our website and social media channels, where we are sharing virtual exhibitions, event recordings, research and resources for audiences to continue to look at, learn about, discuss and create artworks from home.

Grant Opens May 7th
