Last Friday I received confirmation that the Arts Council of England have awarded me a Grant For The Arts in support of Unbroken Line. I received the pack on Friday but wanted to read it carefully over the weekend before I made any announcements.
From now on, any publicity for Unbroken Line has to be accompanied with the words ‘Supported using public funds by The National Lottery through The Arts Council of England’ and this logo:
Information on their support can be found here: www.artscouncil.org.uk
It’s a huge honour for me. I feel very much overwhelmed that my application has been awarded a grant. Unbroken Line has many themes that are very personal for me but I have a feeling that they will resonate with other people. It feels like a validation for the past 3 years of working on it, and for my artistry. It comes with a huge responsibility and a need for me to honour the support. It is funds from the National Lottery. The list of their recipients is huge and an honourable roll-call. I am one of them. Times are hard and it has been increasingly harder and harder for artists to get grants such as these. I feel incredibly lucky and grateful that Unbroken Line has been given an award.
Now I can concentrate on The Art
Now I can make it the best it can be.
Thank you Arts Council of England and Thank You to my friends and family who have supported me in this. You’re here with me.
