Arts Council England is launching a new £5 million funding programme to support voluntary and community organisations in England to develop creative and cultural activities as part of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations.
The Let’s Create Platinum Jubilee Fund will open for applications on the 4 January 2022 and will make grants of up to £10,000.
Applicants will be encouraged to think about what creative activity would mean the most to their local communities and why, and to partner with established artists, creatives and cultural organisations to develop their activities.
To be eligible projects should engage with at least one of the artforms which ACE supports through
its funding. These are:
- Visual arts
- Combined arts – including festivals and carnivals
- Museum and library activities.
The Fund will be administered by UK Community Foundations. Applicants should refer to their local Community Foundation for details of the closing date in their area. Applicants can find information on all the community foundations here
