Seed Funding

Through our seed funding programme, we provide financial assistance to local, professional artists working in any discipline who need funding to create new work or for the development of their own creative process as they pursue a career in the arts.

We want to hear from Jersey artists about activities that will support them to develop their practice and create work that will entertain and inspire audiences both locally and internationally.

The guidelines should also answer any questions you have about the assessment process and how we make our decisions. It is recommended you contact Natasha Dettman, ArtHouse Jersey Producer, about your project before submitting an application form.
