Today I found out that my bid with the arts council for funding with the National Centre for Craft & Design Exhibition & community iPad workshops, got the go ahead!

This means I can now purchase 30 x iPads, along with lots of other wonderful gizmos, that will enable me to provide iPad workshops to schools and colleges in Lincolnshire.

The funding will also cover the cost of getting my working framed and mounted for the exhibition, along with the costs of a multitude of equipment & one day a week's 'wage' for delivering the iPad workshops.

I cannot express how happy about this as it gives me an opportunity to put something back into the community, whilst truly saying that I am a professional artist.

It also brings me one step closer to being able to secure funding for the artist in residency post with my beloved Wakefield Trinity WIldcats RLFC. 

 Today is a good day, which I will enjoy and then the hard work of delivering this wonderful project.

The NCCD exhibition will open on 28th July 2012.
