    Arts Council funding and top tips for applying with artist Azara Meghie

    March 14 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


    Funding advice for Creatives and Curious Minds – hosted by Metal

    Got a great idea for a project but not sure how to fund it? This workshop is for you.  Join artist Azara Meghie who will talk you through what you need to know about applying for Arts Council funding, including top tips, their experience of applying and how to break it down into manageable sections. This session will be an introduction to Arts Council Project Grants from an artist who has successfully received funding themselves.

    This workshop is the first in a series of talks and open advice sessions that Metal is collaborating on with Arts Council England (ACE). The hosted talks and open advice sessions will explore and discuss how artists, community and voluntary groups can apply for a Project Grant to fund their work. ACE are particularly keen to fund more people from the Peterborough and Fenland area and want to support them in applying.

    There will be a chance to ask questions over some light refreshments and snacks.

    About Arts Council England Project Grants: Project Grants can support individual practitioners, communities and cultural organisations with projects that focus on combined arts including festivals and carnivals, dance, libraries, literature, museums, music, theatre or visual arts.

    The funding comes from the National Lottery. Grants usually range from £1,000 to £100,000. Project Grants are always open, so you can apply at any time. You can choose whether you would like to apply for up to £30,000 or over £30,000 for your project. When the Arts Council say ‘project’, they mean a series of activities or a piece of work. Your project will have a start and an end date, and a set of measurable aims that you’d like to achieve in that time. https://www.artscouncil.org.uk/ProjectGrants
