Apply for Funding

We understand how important art is to us as individuals and to our communities. Art plays a significant role in improving our wellbeing, mental health and enjoyment of life. We also know that money can often be a barrier when it comes to the arts which is why we offer funding to help make art more accessible to everyone.

We offer funding as a Grant, Bursary, Student Award and Underwriting. If you're unsure which one is right for you then we're always happy to chat. Email or tel 01624 694598.

Are you a first time applicant? If you are new to the funding process then you may like to read our Funding Tips before you apply.
