Our support goes towards the UK artist development activity within BE Festival, building on a model that we supported in 2015 through our Small Grants fund. BE Festival will work with 36 artists over the course of 2017 and 2018, providing mentoring, residencies and performances at the festival. For artists based in the West Midlands there will also be a year round training programme focused  on accessing international opportunities.
