Arts Council Funding Update

6 October 2020 / 18:30-20:30

For Castlefield Gallery Associates members only

Arts Council Relationship Manager Clarissa Corfe joins us to talk about how Arts Council England is currently supporting artists. After suspending Project Grants and Developing Your Creative Practice funding in order to focus on Emergency Funding, the Arts Council reopened Project Grants funding in July. Well aware that artists have been hit hard by Covid-19, ACE is currently particularly keen to support applications from individual artists, including research and development and organisational development. In addition, ACE has relaxed its requirements about cash match funding and demonstrating public engagement.

Relationship Manager Clarissa Corfe will update us on what the Arts Council’s current priorities mean for artists and how best to put together an application. Clarissa is Relationship Manager for Visual Arts North at Arts Council England and a contemporary art curator/producer. Prior to working for ACE she was curator at the Harris Gallery, Preston and here at Castlefield Gallery.
