BRADFORD Producing Hub (BPH) opens its sixth round of support for local artists through Spare Bob, a micro-grant of up to £500.

Forty-six artists and or companies have been successful in receiving Spare Bob support since February 2020, bringing the overall investment into Bradford’s creative industries through Spare Bob to £23,459.

Covid-19 revealed the vulnerability of the arts sector. BPH's support covered a range of needs, from establishing new ways of working, business structures and fundraising, to audience development and mentoring schemes.

Spare Bob is open to anyone working in the Live Arts industries in Bradford who wishes to engage in personal or organisational development.

Deadline for this round of Spare Bob funding is October 26.
