We launched the Studio Innovation Fund in 2021 to help creative tech start-ups recover after the Covid-19 pandemic.
The fund has now supported a total of 21 creative tech projects that address social causes, with £100k of funding.
These projects have helped young people re-engage with learning through the creative use of AI; helped visually impaired people connect with each other through sound and movement; made theatre productions more accessible for neurodivergent artists; and raised awareness of the unethical patenting of botany and the indigenous communities affected via AR and performance. The fund has had a significant impact on our Residents’ businesses and the wider community.
The awardees of the 2024 Studio Innovation Fund have now been announced!
