Getting to Grips with the new ACE Project Grants

Monday 24 January, 12.30pm-2.30pm

Via Zoom

If you’re planning to submit an ACE Project Grant and want some time to get your head round the new application process, this is for you.

The workshop will include:

  • Key differences between the old and new application form
  • What are the Let’s Create Outcomes and how do I show how my project contributes to them?
  • What are the Investment Principles and how do they apply to my project?
  • Discussion and support from other people in the same boat
  • Time to ask questions

The session will include practical activities and discussions to put the new process into action. You can use a project you’re planning to put in an application for, to help you get started on your bid, or just an example project to apply the concepts to.

Workshop delivered by Christina Poulton
I am an arts trainer and consultant and have worked in different arts jobs across the UK for the last 18 years. I love working with artists and organisations on their finance, policies, fundraising, organisational development and procedures – all the things that underpin the arts and allow amazing projects to happen. My fundraising experience covers the spectrum from raising small pots of money for community projects through to leading on fundraising strategy and successful multi year large-scale bids for Arts Council National Portfolio Organisations. My training is informed by extensive, current experience as a producer and Exec Director of an NPO and arts charity.
