Artists funded on a project by project basis can lack the support they need to maintain their practice, develop creative ideas and take advantage of opportunities as they come up. Our Align programme seeks to address that by offering the support of a producer, and practical and financial help tailored to suit each artist.

By listening to, advising and developing relationships with artists across the South East, we identify those who might benefit most from Align support, and each year approach a small number to invite them to join the programme.
