KEVIN SPACEY FOUNDATION
ARTISTS OF CHOICE
Spring 2015, 2016 & 2017
ARTISTS OF CHOICE
The KSF grants supported emerging artists and companies, giving them a financial boost of up to £10,000 / $10,000, mentoring opportunities with respected industry professionals and advice on how to promote themselves and their project.
Every year we selected ten KSF Artists of Choice, five UK based applicants and five US based applicants.
From 2015- 2017 I recruited the industry experts in the UK and US for each of the panels as well as shortlisting applications and sitting on each of the UK panels to help determine the ten outstanding emerging artists from theatre, dance, musical theatre, music and film.
