UNIT is pleased to announce the launch of TOP UP, a materials grant scheme. We offer grants of up to £250 towards the production of new work. Awards are not tiered, applicants may request a specific amount based on their individual needs.

The Booster scheme enables exceptional emerging artists to realise a project by providing financial support for the procurement of materials. The grant must contribute to the development of new work. Artists should carefully consider how their project or work relates to UNIT’s ethos and wider programme.

We do not award grants for the following:
– Residencies
– Research and Development schemes
– Theatre
– Symposia or conferences
– Publications or zines

To apply, please complete and submit this form.

The deadline for the current round of grants is July 31st 2019.
