The Brent Artist Network invites local artists and creatives to attend a roundtable discussion with representatives from three funding organisations including Arts Council England, National Heritage Lottery Fund, and Old Oak and Park Royal Development Corporation (OPDC).

These representatives will present information about available funding in their respective organisations, and how Brent artists can apply. The speakers will also provide guidance on how to put your best foot forward when applying for external funding.

The talk will then open to a general Q&A and virtual networking between participants and speakers.

This will be an RSVPonly event on Zoom, and an audio recording will be made available post event.
