It’s open to Islanders aged between 11 to 25, with up to £200 available for individuals to deliver an art project in any genre. Upon completion of their project, they will gain a Bronze Trinity Guildhall Arts Award.

Travis says: “Young people should apply as it will enhance their skills, particularly their life skills in budgeting and leadership. Island Young Arts will benefit not just those applying for and receiving the grants, but also the participants, volunteers and community.”

The call out is open until April 28th, although further rounds will take place during the summer and next year. You can contact Travis on 07598 78097 or email:
