As of March 2018, artists can no longer apply for Grants for the Arts; instead, the Arts Council has set up two new programmes:
Arts Council National Lottery Project Grants, which replaced Grants for the Arts from 5 March 2018 and which is for projects that engage a public or are intended for an audience; and Developing Your Creative Practice, a new dedicated fund to support artists’ development which will open on 12 April.
For our April Castlefield Gallery Associates session we will be joined by Relationship Manager at Arts Council England, Maria Percival who will talk about what this means for artists and how best to put together an application, with a focus on how artists can fund research and development.
Associate members can book a free place at https://cga_april2018.event
Castlefield Gallery Associates is a membership scheme designed to provide members with information, skills, opportunities, resources, promotion and critical dialogue. It acts as a hub, bringing together artists, curators and writers, facilitating critical exchange and engagement with members’ work and strengthening the artistic ecology of the North West. The scheme includes user-generated activities, developed in response to members’ needs and requests. Find out more at castlefieldgallery.co.uk/associates/
