Black Artists Grant (June 2020)

The Black Artists Grant (BAG) is £500 given out monthly to a black artist in the UK. This grant offers no-strings attached financial support to help the selected artist in whatever they want – be that to make new work, buy equipment or materials, travel, research, visit exhibitions or conferences, or to even just cover some life expenses.

This is the beginning of an ongoing project of support funded by Creative Debuts who are a platform for emerging artists. ROOT-ed is a zine run by Amber Akaunu and Fauziya Johnson that aims to promote, support and inspire creative people of colour.
