What’s the process? 

This opportunity applies to Real Ideas Membership across all spaces and CAMP. Real Ideas are pleased to be partnering with and supporting CAMP with this opportunity.

We invite you to tell us more about you and your creative enterprise.

We aim to be as inclusive as possible in our work but recognise we’re on a journey. We also  recognise the creative sector is biased towards those who are white, cisgender and non-disabled.

Our  programme  will be stronger with greater diversity and we welcome applications from those who bring difference. We have included a short equality, diversity and inclusion survey with this application process and if successful, we may ask you for further information about you and/or your workforce so we can better understand our reach and how, together, we can start to break down barriers to inclusion and celebrate diversity. The information collected from the survey will be anonymous and completion is voluntary and won’t be used to affect our shortlisting process in anyway. 

For more information about how Real Ideas saves and uses your data please visit our website:  

We have provided a link to an application form below, (and the equalities, diversity and inclusion survey) please make sure to have read the considerations under each opportunity before applying. We are only currently accepting applications from groups/individuals who live within the South West region.
