Taking Part: Grants for the Arts session

Grants for the Arts sessions - offered by Arts Council England to introduce their open access fund.

This free session includes background information about the Arts Council, the kind of funding on offer, information about Grants for the Arts and how to apply. The types of activities funded (and not funded) and who can apply are also covered, with time for questions and an opportunity to book onto 30 minute sessions for people with developed ideas. This workshop is a must for those seeking funding for arts-based activities.

 

Arts Council England champions, develops and invests in artistic and cultural experiences that enrich people’s lives. We support a range of activities across the arts, museums and libraries – from theatre to digital art, reading to dance, music to literature, and crafts to collections. Great art and culture inspires us, brings us together and teaches us about ourselves and the world around us. In short, it makes life better.

Grants for the Arts is our open access fund that exists to be reactive to new ideas, new talent and new approaches in the arts.

Grants for the Arts distributes awards of between £1000 and usually £100,000 from the National Lottery to:

  • individuals
  • arts organisations
  • people who use the arts in their work

For time limited arts-related activities that:

  • benefit people in England
  • help artists and arts organisations in England 
    carry out their work

Grants for the Arts is open to individuals and organisations, however the activity being proposed must be arts-focused. Many different types of organisations can apply, for example arts organisations, libraries, museums, archives services and non-arts organisations such as health trusts and housing associations using the arts in their work. The types of projects we fund are productions, exhibitions, participatory projects, festivals, carnivals, workshops, digital projects and many more.

In the session we will give the group some background information about the Arts Council, the kind of funding we offer, information about Grants for the Arts and how to apply. We will describe the types of activities we fund and who can apply. We will also clarify the kind of activity we do not fund. After the presentation there will be time for questions and an opportunity to book onto 30 minute sessions for people with developed ideas.
