Artist Daniel Foulds Receives Arts Council Backing for own Project

Mind the Gap is pleased to announce that Artist Daniel Foulds has secured £14,256 funding from Arts Council England’s Grants for the Arts Scheme to Research and Develop his own project called ‘Bradford: A Hidden History’.

The project will explore influential people from Bradford’s history who have often been overlooked because they weren’t connected to the City’s rich historical textile industry. Learning-disabled artist Daniel will be writing and directing the piece with a group of non learning-disabled actors and will be mentored along the way by Writer Mary Cooper and Director Tom Wright. He will also work closely with the Bradford Historical & Antiquarian Society to ensure his work is factually correct.

Daniel Foulds said “I’m exhillirated to have received Grants for the Arts funding for my own project as being a learning disabled artist, this is very rare. I can’t wait to get started and hopefully this R&D funding will open the door for future funding to realise the final piece.”

Daniel will start working on his project straight away. His R&D week will take place at Mind the Gap in May working towards a work in progress sharing at the beginning of July. Watch this space…
