We are holding a special grants round to respond to and encompassing our charitable objectives and funding priorities but now also to include initiatives and projects relating and responding to the COVID-19 pandemic.
2018-2021 FUNDING PRIORITIES
In accordance with members wishes and the results of the grants consultation in 2018, we identified the following three priorities. You can still organise projects locally outside of these remits but they will not qualify for a grant.
Arts Projects programmes support a wide range of activities to introduce people of all ages to, and engage them in, artistic experience and practice. They include: artists in residence; art lectures for students; funding visits to art galleries and museums; art exhibitions for young artists; arts supplies; practical workshops; local Arts Week events; bursaries for individual students; and sponsorship for craft apprentices.
This area is about projects and programmes that further the development and training of skills in the arts, crafts and heritage. There are no age limits to this as we believe that people of all ages benefit from acquiring and honing their creative and heritage skills.
REGIONAL MUSEUMS, GALLERIES & ARTS ORGANISATIONS
The work of regional and local museums and galleries is important in connecting people with their local heritage and arts; yet these institutions often struggle to raise funds for projects and internships during times of budget cuts. Our grants may support special projects, displays, internship or part-time posts, training and conservation activities. We will also consider applications involving regional and local theatres and performing arts spaces and groups.
WHAT WE DONT FUND

Please note, reserves will be taken into account. Reserves are the funds that your Society is keeping to protect you against drops in income or allow you to take advantage of new opportunities. Please check the level of your Society's reserves with your Treasurer.
