The Arts Council England has launched a new round of their Creative People and Places National Portfolio Fund. The aim of the Fund is to support arts projects in places where involvement in the arts is significantly below the national average.
Grants of between £750,000 and £1 million will be available to both new and existing consortia and will operate over three years, investing in programmes of activity that bring creative opportunities to communities in 66 eligible locations not currently engaging with the arts.
The Arts Council is keen to encourage long-term collaborations between local communities and arts organisations, museums, libraries and local authorities. Match funding of 15% is required.
The closing date for applications is the 11th June 2021.
