Mentoring Support for Underrepresented Groups in the Creative Industries

Play Nice has partnered with the Foundation for Future London to launch collaborative support for young creatives who would not have the opportunity to develop an equitable future.

Foundation for Future London, an independent charity connecting east London communities with the globally renowned arts, innovation and cultural partners, and Culture Mile – London’s ‘new cultural district’ which stretches from Farringdon to Moorgate creating a self-described emerging creativity hub with funding to expand the area’s cultural reach.

What’s on offer? The opportunity to curate your own project, with support of institutions within London’s ‘new cultural district’, such as the City of London Corporation, Barbican, Guildhall School of Music and Drama, London Symphony Orchestra or Museum of London.

  • Lamisa Khan, Co-founder of Muslim Sisterhood
  • Noga-Levy Rapoport, Ambassador for UK Student Climate Network
  • Lavinya Stennett, Founder of the Black Curriculum

Commitment: 16 hours per week throughout February

Award: Four groups of five will receive £5000 curatorial fee to respond to their mentor’s brief.
