Creative Ideas Fund

Open to 16 – 25s


A space to collaborate and make your ideas a reality.

We are looking for a group of young creatives to collaborate and bring their creative idea to life.

It could be: a campaign, a performance, a film, a dance piece, an installation art piece or anything else you can imagine! We would like to see collaboration across different art-forms.


The group will get:
An inspiration event from Apple
Inspiration sessions from creative professionals
Weekly sessions on Tuesdays to build your creative network
Funding to make your collaborative cross art form idea a reality
Dedicated support from Spotlight's creative team


The programme will run every Tuesday from 6 – 8pm at Spotlight, 30 Hay Currie Street, E14 6GN.


Applications open Friday 17th September
Deadline for applications Sunday 26th September
Programme starts Tuesday 28th September
