Developing Your Creative Practice application workshop

Wednesday 27 January, 6.00pm-7.30pm
(60 mins information session, followed by 30 minute Q&A)
Via Zoom


In this online session, Producer Laura Brewis will talk you through Arts Council England’s (ACE) Developing Your Creative Practice application form. Over the course of the workshop, Laura will share her advice on what information to include, how to structure your answers and how to make your application stand out, working through each of the main sections of the form.

This session is for anyone who is considering applying for Arts Council Developing Your Creative Practice Grant or who has applied but without success. It will work best if you have a project in mind, but can also be accessed as an introduction to the application process.

We would recommend that if you are intending on applying you set up a Grantium (the online portal used by ACE) profile in advance of the workshop so that you can familiarise yourself with the form in advance. More information on how to do this can be found here: Please note, it can take up to 14 days to have your profile activated.
