In what can only be called ‘typical’. I’ve once again forgotten to announce some funding on the blog.
Last time I’d forgotten to report that the Supertitle project had won National Lottery Funding, this time I entirely failed to tell readers that AzuleJoe and CommuniKate have won some funding from the London Catalyst.
London Catalyst have been a really interesting group to work with actually – before our application was considered by the trustees the CEO interviewed us at their offices to get a bit more of a sense of the projects and the bid. I think this is a fantastic system; I’m constantly amazed that grant committees can get a real understanding of the passion and potential behind an idea just from the application form itself.
The grant itself is for £2,500 ( £1000 for software and £1500 for outreach, facilitating and volunteer support) and is predicated on us doing a large amount of outreach in London – so we’ll be looking for venues to come and visit shortly. If you have such a venue – and you know a group of people that might be interested to hear the story behind CommuniKate and AzuleJoe – then please get in touch!
