Arts Council England funding
Arts Council England has offered Future Talent a Grants for the Arts award to support the Charity’s mentoring, development and bursary programme for the next 12 months. The award will enable us to recruit a part-time Relationship Manager, a new post, dedicated to looking after the bespoke needs of each young musician. This is a landmark moment for the Charity, not only enabling us to take our work to the next level, but also receiving such a positive endorsement from the UK’s leading funder of the arts.
A recent ABRSM report further demonstrates why the work of Future Talent throughout the UK is still so important.
