Apply for a Sputnik Grant

We're offering grants to artists who are struggling with financial difficulties in the current pandemic.

We’ve temporarily halted our usual Patrons scheme to offer no-strings grants of £200 to artists in our network who have lost work, or are struggling, as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. However, you can see previous projects we’ve funded and contact us if you have any questions about the Patrons scheme and when it will become active again.

If you would like to apply for financial assistance in the meantime, simply email office@sptnk.co.uk and give us the details below. Our intention is to not make this difficult for you at all, but it will help us if we can understand a little of your situation and how you are connected to Sputnik.

What is your name?

Where do you live?

Can you give a brief description of your practice (with online links to work if possible)?

Can you write a short paragraph, explaining why you need financial assistance?

Which Sputnik hub are you connected to? (Birmingham, Edinburgh, Falmouth, London)

If none of these, could you tell us how you’re connected to the network?
