InvestSK is delighted to present a new grant funding programme to help creative artists and performers in South Kesteven.

The fund is designed for both individuals and organisations (e.g. community groups, amateur groups, schools, creative industries etc.) to enhance their skills, develop performance opportunities, invest in specialist equipment or promote their activities more effectively in the local area.

Individual award recipients can use their funding towards costs (E.g. tuition, equipment, travel etc.) and individual support, such as training, mentoring, workshops with professional artists, the chance to observe professionals in rehearsal and performance and a range of other developmental and progression opportunities. Organisations may use their funding for costs such as professional support, equipment, or special events.

Submissions for the Creative Artists Small Grant Fund are now open and will close on 28 February 2020. Grants of up to £500 for individuals and £1,500 for organisations are available in any given financial year.

If you have any questions, please email Michael Cross, Head of Arts at InvestSK.
