Scotee- Room to Respond (for working class artists)

In 2018 Scotee and friends were awarded three years of support from Paul Hamlyn Foundation through the Breakthrough fund. As part of their award we have a small pot of cash available to us that we call Room to Respond. In previous years it has allowed them to run artist support meetings in Southend, brought 1200 people together from across the UK to respond to spike in LGBTQ+ hate crime last summer and allowed them to restage Hamburger Queen – their participatory fat fest and to host multiple  community dinners in Dublin and Manchester.

Below they’ve come up with a few ways we think they might be useful – small activisms and responses that they hope will give a bit of support, some space for digital outputs, contribute to thinking about care for artists and provocations from working class makers who, they feel, will be disproportionately affected by covid closures.

Each film will be showcased on social media and YouTube channels, giving their audience a taste of your work. Each successful artist will receive £250 for their film. They ask that films are no longer than 10 minutes and encourage DIY aesthetics – using what you have to hand, shooting on your phone or tablet.
