The Grants Committee will be giving particular consideration to any projects impacted by or bring most benefit to those affected by the pandemic. Project applications should still meet the criteria outlined below and fall under one or more of the areas of giving in our funding strategy.

OUR 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

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.

SKILLS DEVELOPMENT

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 DON'T FUND

  • Operational costs, machinery and equipment.

  • Non-compliance with application procedures.

  • 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.
