Have you always wanted to start a publication, host an exhibition or create a film or podcast? We want to hear from you!
A key driver of Extra Nice, It’s Nice That’s membership programme has always been to support the creative industry in a variety of ways. One pillar of this is the Extra Nice Fund, where ten per cent of each Supporter’s fee is immediately put aside to be awarded to a creative each year. In our wider mission to always champion creativity, highlighting impactful, self-driven projects is a true cornerstone of our work at It’s Nice That. We are delighted to now be able to support more ideas directly with financial backing of £3,000.
Applications for the Extra Nice Fund are open to all. However, we are specifically looking to support ideas and projects by people from marginalised communities. If you do not identify with a marginalised group, we also welcome your application, but your proposal must demonstrate how it will positively impact underrepresented or marginalised groups.
The awarded applicant of the Extra Nice Fund will receive £3,000 to support their dream idea and make it a reality. Whatever this idea may be is entirely up to you and we encourage individuals to utilise the fund how they see fit for their project’s requirements.
There are no specifications in discipline or theme, and we welcome a variety of creatives to get in touch. You may want to use the £3,000 to help fund a new or existing publication, support the cost of hosting an exhibition or event, start a podcast, create a film or offer mentoring, for example. It’s Nice That is additionally open to the Fund being put towards continuing an already launched idea, part-funding a larger scale project, or kickstarting an idea you’ve always wanted to bring to life – or one that’s just come to mind!
