11:24:52 From Cath James : Thank you to Sussex Community Foundation for that support for our older vulnerable and isolated adults, who are participants in one of our dance projects. Brilliant.
11:26:12 From Cath James : Some info on this here: https://southeastdance.org.uk/blog/movement-to-lift-the-spirits-in-lockdown-the-welcome-project-activity-durin/

11:26:25 From Michelle Donkin : So so so inspiring Toni! Thank you so much!
11:27:24 From abigail : Has the crash on stock markets affected your income (from your HNWI supporters and T&F's )over the last few months and are there any trends that you think give an insight into grant funding going forward?

11:32:21 From abigail : Thanks Toni, that's brilliant.
11:35:21 From Michelle Donkin : In terms of access - Do you think you’d move toward video application?
11:36:27 From Jenni Lewin-Turner : Would Sussex Community Foundation consider offering Access Support - similar to ACE to help individuals to apply
11:36:54 From Jenni Lewin-Turner : or is this already in place/
11:36:54 From Elena Italia - Brighton Artists Network : I’m sorry if you’ve said this before but do you have a sense of when SCF and other funders might move away from crisis funding to recovery and back to normal?
11:37:25 From Liz Porter : I think organisations such as Diverse City have used video applications before and I also think Stay Up Late do, they can be an accessible format,
11:38:08 From Liz Porter : There is real need for a conversation around accessible recruitment process I’d be interested in that conversation.
11:38:24 From Marina Norris : Also Cause 4 accepted video applications for their last round of small grants to support networks.
11:38:26 From Karen Poley : I think Paul Hamlyn used video applications for one of their strands, a couple of years ago
11:38:41 From Marlborough Productions : Unlimited deffo use video applications too
11:39:00 From Louise Blackwell : Jerwood Arts also use video applications for some strands
11:39:35 From Marina Norris : ACE provides funding for an individual to access their own support
11:40:49 From Liz Porter : I think it ’s also about encouraging people to consider how to budget for accessibility and support. Actually GRAEAE theatre company have done allot of work around building accessibility into theatre so if you don’t know their work do check it out. Disability Arts Online have been doing loads of Zoom workshop’s and looking into accessibility within them too

11:43:19 From Marina Norris : And just want to say that Sarah Pickthall, a local WN member, pioneered the Access fund within ACE when she was there.
11:43:38 From Michelle Donkin : We’ve just set up an organisation called Ironclad Creative with an aim to support emerging creatives including supporting their funding their projects applications and access/mentoring. Is that something that we could look into getting support for?
11:44:01 From Karen Poley : Yes, anyone know when ACE might reinstate project grants?
11:47:22 From Michelle Donkin : Yes - can we talk about going forward having a point of contact across all NPOs and established organisations who will take calls/emails after the world starts again for emerging artists?
11:47:26 From Anna Alvarez (she/her) : alclasper@gmail.com
11:49:33 From Kyla Booth-Lucking : sorry I have to leave without contributing anything this week. take care
11:51:58 From Steven Brett : Take care in the warmths everyone! Sorry - I have to depart...
11:52:12 From Dell Gardiner : I am looking for a mentor for a 15yr old student of mine very talented artist, ASD and Pathological Demand Avoidance, Lovely chap but hugely disadvantaged in life.
11:52:45 From Michelle Donkin : Dell - I’m happy to talk and help find someone who is DBS, etc. x Michelle@ironcladcreative.org

11:53:06 From Marina Norris : Michelle, did you look at Business Hot House support via The University of Chichester?
