Main Grants Scheme - Arts

The Foundation seeks applications that make a strong artistic case for support in either the performing or visual arts. Our Arts programme has a twofold purpose to help sustain the arts and to support projects that particularly help to deliver artistic vision.  We look for value for money, long term benefit and sustainability in projects that we support.  Typical areas of support include:

  • helping to make the arts more accessible by developing new audiences, supporting tours, festivals and arts educational projects;
  • encouraging new work and supporting young and emerging artists;
  • building projects that improve or re-equip existing arts venues (rather than construction of new facilities, although this will not be excluded);
  • projects that encourage sustainability by reducing overheads or which help generate additional revenue.

Generally, we make grants for specific projects/activities. We will consider applications for core funding (but generally only from smaller organisations or from those not receiving recurrent revenue funding from the Arts Council or local authorities).

Please note that community arts activity will not generally be supported.
