The Baring Foundation’s Arts Programme has launched a new Fund supporting projects that promote the use of art to address mental health problems in people from ethnically diverse backgrounds.
The Baring Foundation is offering grants of between £10,000 and £40,000 for projects that:
- find ways to attract participatory artists from ethnically diverse communities into this area of work and to support them. Examples might include shadowing, internships or apprenticeships, or mentoring or free training opportunities.
- undertake activity to offer creative opportunities to members of specific ethnically diverse communities who have mental health problems.
- or a combination of these approaches.
The type of work funded might include shadowing, internships or apprenticeships, or mentoring or free training opportunities.
£500,000 is available in total for this Fund, and the Foundation expects to award in the region of fifteen or more grants.
The deadline for applications is 12pm on the 21st April 2021.
