Artist Daniel Foulds Receives Arts Council Backing for own Project
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.
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…Newer Blog Post Older Blog Post Back to All Posts
