Whether you’re totally new to the world of Arts Council funding or need more in-depth support on an application already in progress, we are excited to be welcoming representatives of Arts Council England to give us the inside track on everything to do with Project Grants, including changes made to Project Grants in recent months in response to COVID-19.

This session, for individual creative practitioners and cultural organisations based or working in Sunderland, will offer the chance for a general introduction for new applicants, and / or bookable one-to-one sessions for those with a definite idea or who need help with an application already in progress.

2.30pm-5pm: bookable 30 min one-to-ones with ACE representatives

Attendees are welcome to attend only the briefing and Q&A, book into a one-to-one session or book for both.
