Future Fires will receive high level training and mentoring to develop their creative practice, leadership and project management skills
Future Fires is a long-standing Contact programme – supporting young artists to develop creative programmes for their communities. Over twelve months, Future Fires receive funding, mentoring and training to develop their ideas and make their projects happen. We run two-day short courses and a twelve-month programme.
Our two-day Short-Course is delivered three times a year and gives an introduction to developing a community project. We recruit annually for our twelve-month programme for artists who want to speak out on a certain issue, or challenge social barriers which exist.
During the twelve-month programme, Future Fires will receive high level training and mentoring to develop their creative practice, leadership and project management skills. Once the training is completed, Future Fires will receive up to £1000 of funding to make it happen!

We’re looking for five creatives to join us for the next programme. If you’re interested in the arts, community engagement and social change – we want to hear from you!
Future Fires is supported by funding from Esmée Fairbairn Foundation, Paul Hamlyn Foundation, UnLtd and The Peter Kershaw Trust.
