7 Sky Arts Ignition Round Closes 31 May

Sky is to expand further its support for the arts in the UK and Ireland with the launch of a major new programme to
support new arts projects and emerging artists. The programme involves the creation of a new arts fund, Sky Arts Ignition,
with two distinct and complementary strands: The Sky Arts Ignition Series and Sky Arts Ignition Futures Fund.

The Sky Arts Ignition Series will seek to collaborate with six arts organisations over the next three years in the creation of
brand new works. For each of the chosen projects, Sky Arts will provide a cash investment of up to £200,000 and work
with the arts partners to bring their projects to a wider audience, using Sky's platform. The Series is the latest
development in Sky's ongoing commitment to broadening access to the arts across the country, and will represent an
investment of over £1million.

The Sky Arts Ignition Series seeks to work closely with as yet unselected artists and arts organisations, in order to equip
both organisations and broadcasters with a true understanding of each other's process, combining their expertise to
produce the best possible work and offering a unique support system in which to develop and produce brand new
projects. Sky Arts, in partnership with the organisations, will determine how best Sky can give the project prominence on-
air, on demand, online and on the ground, as well as providing marketing, publicity and new media support for each

Applications are now open at www.sky.com/skyartsignition . Further details of the Series are outlined on the site, along
with full guidelines for entries.

In parallel, the Sky Arts Ignition Futures Fund is designed to help young talent to bridge the development gap from school
or college to becoming a working artist. Each year, the fund will support five individuals with a bursary of £30,000 each,
enabling Sky Arts to back the creation of new works of art as well as nurture emerging talent.


8 Open Society Foundation

George Soros established the Open Society Foundations, starting in 1984, to help countries make the transition from
communism. Our activities have grown to encompass the United States and more than 70 countries in Europe, Asia,
Africa, and Latin America. Each foundation relies on the expertise of boards composed of eminent citizens who determine
individual agendas based on local priorities.

Foundations seek to shape public policies that assure greater fairness in political, legal, and economic systems and
safeguard fundamental rights. On a local level, the Open Society Foundations implement a range of initiatives to advance
justice, education, public health, and independent media.

c) Free Legal Clinic for Women Fleeing Domestic Violence Thursday, 12 May 2011 at 09:30 until 13:30

The main purpose of these clinics (to be run by a family solicitor) is for women who are fleeing domestic violence, and
would realistically like to know their options but cannot afford initial fees (especially women who are working). If women
wish to take on their services, the law firm (as they are private) would either reduce their costs to make it more affordable
for them.

These clinics are set up at the Women's Resource Centre right next to the Islamic Jamia Mosque on Montague Way (off
Kings Street, Southall).

These clinics are open to women only from all back grounds, faith and cultures.
