Grants for the arts is the Arts Council’s Lottery-funded scheme for individuals, arts organisations and other people who use the arts in their work. Grants for the arts, supports activities that takes place over a set period of time, engages people in arts activities in England and helps artists and arts organisations in England to carry out their work.

The workshop will be of use to performance companies (particularly to emerging companies with no experience of successfully applying to Grants for the Arts) who wish to develop work in partnership with venues.

The workshop will include:

  • a general presentation about Grants for the Arts applications and how to effectively write them
  • a talk about venue partnerships and how they can be made and then framed and reflected in a G4TA bid
  • a look at a mock application

We will be holding follow up surgeries to look at draft Grants for the Arts applications at Theatre in the Mill on Thursday 3rd April for those who attend this session and are at a draft application stage. Again places will be severely limited on this day and booking will be taken after the 5th March.

Pre- booking is essential as places are limited.  This is a free workshop.
