IOMAC members, Laura Rowles and Jade Boylan both understand the difficulties being experienced within the creative community and the continued need for support.

Whilst the IOMAC Resilience Fund will hopefully provide financial support and relief, I hope that it will also encourage those in the creative industries to once again look at how they can adapt and reach new audiences. Hopefully this will create stronger businesses moving forward.”
