Launching Our New Digital Artist Bursaries!

We’re super excited to be launching our first round of Digital Artist Bursaries!

During this difficult period of physical distancing we want to encourage ways of staying socially connected and increasing solidarity.
We are looking for creative ways for artists to move their practice to digital formats, supporting them to generate new ideas and to reach out to participants who are feeling isolated. We are offering artists seed funding of £500-£1000 which we hope will allow you to test your idea whilst collaborating with and complementing Phakama’s vision.
The deadline for this first round is the 30th April – you can download the project brief here!

We are also very happy to be hosting our first Creative get-together on the 27th April!

This is an opportunity to create some time and space for us to all connect, catch up and share tips and tricks that have been getting us through this difficult period.
If you’d like to join us from 4pm-5pm on Monday 27th April please email Bibi for more details at
We’re looking forward to reconnecting with you then!
