Marc Lewis, Founder and Dean of SCA said: “Since SCA reopened just over 10 years ago, it was always important to me that over a third of our intake each year would go to scholarship recipients. We’ve made it our mission to build on that. Initiatives such as the Creative Floor Talent Fund make it possible to achieve those goals and change more lives for the better. We’re delighted to have won the fund this year, and to share it with our partners at Ideas Foundation is the icing on the cake.”
Helen Poole, Creative Programme Director of Ideas Foundation said: “At Ideas Foundation we believe that all young people, regardless of their background, deserve to take part in opportunities that will give them creative skills and inspire them for their future. It’s an absolute honour to be the recipients of the Talent Fund award, which will allow us to continue our important work in giving access to creative projects and connecting them with inspiring role models. We are delighted to share this with the SCA, who are long term supporters of the Ideas Foundation and have helped many of our students continue the creative journey that they started with IF, by way of scholarships.”

They are both worthy winners and we are so honoured to be supporting them to build the next generation of creative stars.
