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 – its up to you.
There will be two rounds of funding in 2013-14.
- The first round of funding will open on Wednesday 10 April 2013 and will close for applications on Wednesday 22 May 2013 for projects which will happen from summer 2013.
- The second round will open Autumn 2013 for projects which will begin in new year 2014.
The application is an online process, so please view the guidance notes for further details of the Fund and how to apply.
