The Bright Future Fund allows students the chance as individuals or groups to explore their future employment plans and gain funding to help start this process. Any type of subject can be awarded the funding from individuals needing money to travel to a possible client to groups using the money for their exhibition to invite possible employers to see their work on display. As a group, we decided to see if we could gain the funding for our exhibition 'Raw Exposure'. The funding will help in main aspects from starting to promote the event to helping buy certain materials needed for the night. The award of £250 would be a starting point for the group to start focusing down on the funding and look at how we could develop the exhibition. My role in this process was to fill in the application forms and send them off to Karen. The reason I decided to take this role on was the fact that i was the first person to hear about the award from the future festival and i had all the correct paperwork to start the process.
I believe this funding will help us greatly for planning the materials we need and would give everyone a huge weight off their shoulders worrying about the possibility of money.
