14 February 2012 – New Creative People and Places Fund Launched

Arts Council England is accepting applications to its new Creative People and Places Fund. Arts Council England is offering funding to local consortiums to help get local people involved in the arts across parts of England where arts involvement is considerably below the national average.

Funding will be given to these areas to establish long-term partnerships between local communities and arts organisations, museums, libraries and local authorities, called Creative People and Places. The programme aims to empower them to experiment with new and innovative approaches to develop inspiring, sustainable arts programmes that will engage audiences in those communities.

A total of £37 million will be available to establish around 15 projects between autumn 2012 and autumn 2015.

It is anticipated that the majority of proposals will be for between £500,000 and £3 million over three years. It is expected that at least 10% of total project costs should come from other sources. This can also be in kind.

Consortiums of local communities, arts organisations, museums, libraries and local authorities are eligible to apply. If you are not familiar with applying for grant funding there is some guidance and support at www.ruralfunding.co.uk, and a course will also be available soon.

Intentions to apply should be registered by 23 March 2012. The deadline for first round applications is 13 April 2012.

A second round of applications will take place in autumn 2012. For more information, visit the Arts Council England website (opens new window).
