 Join us for an afternoon with the Arts Council to find out more about Grants for the Arts funding. The programme will include opportunities to hear from 3 Arts Council relationship managers from music, combined arts and visual arts on Grants for the Arts. They have a wide collective knowledge and can respond to questions on other art forms.

Eventbrite - Arts Council England, Grants for the Arts Talk and Surgeries, Lewisham

Book a surgery
After the Grants for the Arts information session, attendees will have the chance to have a mini one to one Grants for the Arts surgery with an Arts Council Relationship Manager. These must be booked in advance (see below).

Surgeries booked up? Not ready for a surgery? Take part in a group discussion about Grants for the Arts and other sources of funding with Nancy Stridgen (Lewisham Council Cultural and Community Development Service) and Jane Hendrie and Elizabeth Murton (Lewisham Education Arts Network). More information below.

At 5.30pm we will be transferring to Little Nans, Broadway Theatre Saloon for an hour of informal networking. This is a free event open to the local arts community.

Programme:

3.00pm arrival, tea, coffee, biscuits

3.15pm prompt start – Talk followed by Q&A

4.30pm surgeries begin and facilitated group discussion

5.30pm close (to networking event at Little Nans)

Facilitated Group Discussion:

For those not taking part in the surgeries, you can discuss your questions, concerns and ideas with your peers in small groups. If you don’t want to share your ideas in full – perhaps think of a general question about the idea/application preparation/form you would like to get some feedback on. This could be suggestions for collaborators, evaluation techniques or budget details etc.

About the Surgeries:

There will be 3 Arts Council relationship managers from music, combined arts and visual arts offering 4 slots each. They can all offer feedback on different art forms, so don’t worry if you can’t get a surgery with an officer of choice. To get the most out of the session, you are strongly advised to read the Grants for the Arts guidance first on the Arts Council website

After booking a surgery session, you will need to submit 1 A4 page on your project by midday Thursday 27 April 2017

Please use the template attached to include:

  • A basic budget – income and expenditure
  • 100 words project outline

This is strictly 1 A4 page only.

Any questions please email Elizabeth at LEAN elizabeth@leanarts.org.uk
