PAW2020 Seed Funding #2

Would you like to pitch for some microfunding for your PAW event?

We are delighted to announce that we are running a second seedfund pitching event for PAW2020 (usually known as ‘SOUP’) virtually on the evening of the 19th of June.

If you are selected, you will have to pitch your idea to the live audience and they will then vote on whether they would like to see your project funded. The pots of money tend to be between £500-£600! This time round we will be funding three projects.

To submit your project idea for pitching, please email with the subject line ‘PAW 2020 Seed Funding Pitch Round Two’ and include:

  • a summary of your project & who is involved
  • what your project is going to cost (this is so we have an overall scope for the project)
  • what the outcomes are likely to be

You have until the end of Monday the 8th of June (midnight) to get in touch with the above information, and we will let you know that week if you’re through to the pitching stage! 

There is no specific criteria needed to be included in the pitching process, it’s open to any creative/creative groups who are interested in running an event or exhibition at the Weekender this September. The proposal can be about a project already in progress or a fresh idea and you do not have to have had experience in delivering similar events in the past to be considered to pitch. The call out and criteria is specifically open so as to leave space for the variety and wealth of ideas you might have. If you have any questions, you can email us on

For those of you who are interested in being in the audience on the night, keep an eye on our social media and news page where we will soon announce how you can donate, how to join us virtually for the evening, and of course who will be pitching!
