Worcestershire County Council Arts Funding

Dear all

First of all an apology for not getting in touch with you sooner regarding the funding position and the grants available.

There is still some confirmation needed as to what budget I will have for 2016/17 and with this in mind we have decided to operate the following schemes.

There will be two grants available. The first is the main grant application form. We are opening this to Arts Council National Portfolio Organisations and organisations who either run a venue or produce and create work that takes place across the county. You would also be expected to demonstrate that you receive external funding on a regular basis from other sources. This fund will be very limited and we would only be expecting to make 4-6 grants available.

The second form is the partnership investment fund. This will be open to applicants throughout the year who are looking for matched funding towards other external grants such as Grants for the Arts. We will need to see a draft of the external  bid with the submission and full confirmation of any successful bid. We will reserve a funding pot for each submission date.
Please find the applications on the attached link

I can only apologise for the funding reductions that once again are in place here.

Many thanks

Stephen Wilson
