    Peterborough: Arts Council Project Grant Open Advice Session artist Yvonne Hercules

    May 24 @ 2:00 pm - 5:30 pm


    Metal is working with Arts Council England (ACE) to host a series of talks and open advice sessions about how artists, creatives, community and voluntary groups can apply for a Project Grant to fund their work. ACE are keen for more people from the Peterborough and Fenland area to apply.

    We’re offering free sessions for artists who live and/or work within our local area (Peterborough, Cambridgeshire, and surrounding villages). This session will be supported by local artist Kate Marsh along with a member of the Metal team. These sessions will have an Arts Council project rant focus, but will be led by you and what you’d like to discuss, which might include:

    • Talking through a project idea
    • Deciding which Arts Council funding stream is right for you
    • Budget development or reading draft applications
    • Discussing your creative practice
    • Building relationships with different organisations, voluntary groups, partners or venues to support an application


    About Yvonne Hercules:
    Yvonne is a singer-songwriter/artist & performer based in Cambridge UK. Her music has received nods from publications including Clash Magazine, The Line of Best Fit, Afropunk, and others and she has received support from PRS Foundation, Arts Council England towards her work.

    Inspired by Folk, Blues, Rock & Soul, her songs are a culmination of these genres underpinned by honest, thought-provoking lyrics. She also draws on inspiration from visual mediums outside of music including art & film, with visual concepts often coinciding alongside her songs.

    How to book
    We’re offering these sessions in person at Chauffeurs Cottage, as well as the option to discuss your work with us online. There is one session available per artist and the slots are 1 hour long.

    Sessions will be open on a first come first served basis. Book your free place here. When booking on the session, please also let us know of any access requirements you may need.
