Shape History is thrilled to announce applications for the second round of the History Shaper Fund.

This fund is open to 18-25 year olds in the UK from the 18th of September 2023 to the 1st of October 2023. The Fund offers transformative opportunities for young creatives and changemakers, with specific focus on stimulating the next generation of purpose-driven creative industry leaders.

Earlier this year, we announced the launch of a new £10,000 creative fund – the History Shaper Fund. The fund was created to support and empower young people to tackle social impact issues in the UK and/or around the world with their own creative ingenuity, powered by Shape History.

We want to hear from any young person in the UK aged 18 to 25 who has a new and innovative concept to address anything from human rights to climate justice, health equity or social mobility.

One winner, judged to be the most creative, effective and inclusive will be chosen to receive the full £10,000 plus mentoring from Shape History team members and full time use of our office in London.
