More Colour: A new funding opportunity for young creatives

We have a brand new funding opportunity for young men of colour aged 18-25.

The ‘More Colour’ grant will provide a chance for two young artists to invest in themselves and their work. Whether your creative passion is filmmaking, music, graphic design, illustration, writing or something else entirely, we want to hear from you!

Two successful applicants will receive a grant of £500 each. We hope that the grant can contribute towards new equipment, software, design tools or whatever it is that you need to support your art. What the successful applicant does with their grant is completely up to them.

How to apply?

If you would like to apply for this opportunity, please send us a single PDF document (500 words max) with information on the following included:

  • Your age and where you currently live.
  • What you wish to spend the grant on and why.
  • A couple of paragraphs about your creative interests.
  • Online links to your social media and previous creative work.
  • The email address of a character reference (preferably someone who is familiar with your creative work).



Please send the PDF document to info@mandemhood.com.


If you would prefer to send us a video of yourself sharing the above information that’s fine too! Just email the video (5 mins max) to the address above.

If you have any further questions about the grant, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. The deadline for applications is December 14th.
