Soundcastle are offering a £600 bursary to successful applicants who complete the full programme.

Soundcastle is based in South East England, with regional programmes in East London and Sussex, however the majority of this bursary scheme will take place online, but we will be opening up programme visits so this scheme is ideally suited to people living and working in the South East.

The majority of creative training and co-working sessions will take place on Thursday mornings and mentoring sessions will be booked directly with the mentors around your shared availability.
