Not for profit organisations and charities that are working with schools, colleges and other formal education settings can apply for grants of between £30,000 and £400,000 to enhance the lives, development and achievements of children and young people through high quality arts-based learning activities.
The funding is being made available through the Paul Hamlyn Foundation’s Arts-based Learning Fund.
The Foundation are particularly interested in applications with a focus on the following areas:
- support for pupils who experience systemic disadvantage to access and make progress in their learning
- creating more opportunities for high quality arts-based teaching and learning in education settings, especially in those which have not had this work in the past
- exploring the role of arts-based learning in addressing issues of inclusion, especially racism, in education
- effective practice in digital and blended arts-based teaching and learning
- enabling arts-based learning to be embedded in curricula and practice for the long-term.
Projects can last for two to three years.
All applicants must be working in partnership with schools or other formal education settings – i.e. primary and secondary schools, further education colleges, alternative provision, special schools and early years
Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis.
