This is a fund for Northern Ireland Arts practitioners affected by the Corona Virus Pandemic.  BREAD and BUTTER is what we call the short gigs; the corporate videos, the voice overs, the events etc that keep food on the table.  These lifelines are now being cancelled in droves.  This fund hopes to offer a 'gig' fee of £200.00 on a first come first served basis.  No big forms to fill in.  None of that malarky.  It's not a huge amount.  But it will buy bread and butter.  Well, maybe Flora.

For those wanting to apply:  We're still at the fundraising stage and are liaising with The Civic Theatre in Tallaght, Dublin who have set up a similar scheme in the South.  The application won't be huge, just a google doc asking for details.  That's what they have used and it seems to be working well.  We anticipate a huge amount of applications so we're going to go live at a certain point in the future with links to the google form etc.  Don't worry.  We will advertise it to bits.  Bear with us as we're co-ordinating all of this from a distance.  

The application will be by google form, see updates for details.  We will be giving out individual awards of £200 to each successful applicant.  We will be keeping proof of every bank transaction for security purposes.  

Stay safe.  Stay at home and don't watch Pandemic. 

We will  overcome.
