The grants, set up to help during the COVID-19 pandemic, range from £2,000 to £10,000 and, according to the Arts Council website, applicants "only need to have had one years’ experience outside of a formal educational setting."

There will be a total of £18 million granted over the next 12 months, with four rounds between October 2020 and October 2021. Even if your application is rejected, you can reapply for another round.
