ARTCRY is led by a group of artists, creatives, agitators and producers. We believe that a new fund can encourage and enable more artists to make work as part of our public dialogue, and that we need this now.
We are the current panel making decisions on applications to Artcry. The panel will change every six months so that the people who get to make decisions on who gets awarded funding regularly changes.
The panel are involved on an individual capacity, not representing their organisations and on a voluntary basis. If you are interested in joining the panel in future please email Kathryn Bilyard on with some information about yourself and why you are interested.
