BBC Performing Arts Fund

The BBC Performing Arts Fund Fellowship is designed for people who have shown dedication to a career in the performing arts industry. The Fellowship with EFDSS is a unique and bespoke opportunity for a folk musician or dance artist in the early stages of their career to work closely with EFDSS staff and cohorts to develop their skills (creative and business), knowledge of the folk sector, and help establish them in a professional career. The Fellowship is a bespoke programme and will be designed with the successful applicant to suit their specific developmental needs.
