Grant scheme for arts projects
The County Council is committed to supporting Nottinghamshire citizens to benefit from arts projects across the county. One of the ways we can do this is through the Nottinghamshire Arts Fund, our grant scheme for arts projects.
The fund is for anyone helping to get more people to participate in the arts in Nottinghamshire. We welcome applications from individual artists, members of the community, arts organisations as well as community and voluntary groups.
In brief, your project should:
Require funding between £500 and £2500
Have a minimum of 10% funding from other sources
Have clear beginning and end dates
Take place within the administrative boundaries of Nottinghamshire (this excludes the City of Nottingham)
Involve a professional artist
Benefit the citizens of Nottinghamshire.
The term 'arts project' is flexible. It may be a single event, a series of workshops, a programme of music or an artist residency – it's up to you, but we recommend you speak to us for advice before deciding to apply.
Applying for funding in 2015
Applications for the second round of funding will open on Monday 22 September 2014 and close Monday 27 October 2014. Decisions on funding will be made by a committee of elected members in December 2014. You should not plan your project to start before January 2015.
If you have been successful in Round 1 of funding you should not apply for Round 2.
