Arts Council England
Arts Council England – who we are: We are the principle funder and development agency for the arts in England. We invest public money from the government and the National Lottery to make sure everyone’s creativity is given the chance to flourish and we all have access to a remarkable range of high-quality cultural experiences. We’re looking for organisations, artists, events, initiatives and others to apply for our funding. This session gives you the opportunity to hear directly from three music specialists (Relationship Managers) about two of our most popular funding streams; National Lottery Project Grants and Develop Your Creative Practice.
National Lottery Project Grants is our open access programme. The fund supports thousands of individual artists, community and cultural organisations to run arts projects anywhere within England. Until 31 August 2021, the fund will focus on the needs of smaller independent organisations and individual practitioners
Develop Your Creative Practice (DYCP) supports Individual cultural and creative practitioners thinking of taking their practice to the next stage through things such as: research, time to create new work, travel, training, developing ideas, networking or mentoring.
