“We’re so proud to see how our Coventry Local Artists Development Fund has sparked such a breadth of creativity from writers, artists and creatives in the city. New work is key to keeping a place vibrant, energised and healthy.”
“The development fund was a substantial help. It helped me reconnect with creatives, find my confidence in performing by learning lines in a short space of time and perform with others. It also helped me to see two pieces of theatre.”
