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 2014 round of funding for arts projects are now closed.
