Square One - Making Funding Fairer 30 Jan 2017

Freya Morgan has worked in the third sector in a variety of roles; through this experience she became aware that funding application processes and information are not accessible for most people, and can discourage those who are already at a disadvantage from applying for the resources they need to run social justice and arts projects. She plans to research the barriers to accessing funding and aims to find out whether a user-friendly online platform would help to make the process fairer, more inclusive and effective. During this 12-month project, she will conduct a survey and run focus groups across the UK to determine how the platform is shaped and which areas need targeting.

Project Sparks 02 Feb 2017

Eamonn McCarron is a trained musician and special education supervisor based in Northern Ireland, who has a passion for maximising teacher and learner potential by establishing cultures of collaboration, shared educational values and mutual accountability. His idea, Project Sparks, is to develop a new and innovative learning model in the creative arts where people with learning disabilities teach percussion, singing and dance to young children and higher-need learners. The model alters the traditional relationship between educator and student, by transforming learners who have learning disablities from passive recipients to become active role-models, harnessing their aspirations, interests and abilities. With PHF funding, Eamonn will explore how the model could work and will generate key learning which he hopes will provide an evidence basis for future expansion.
