Grants for the Arts is an evidence based application for public funding. The success of your application relies solely on the information you provide. It cannot rely on website links or assumption of prior knowledge of you or your work.
If you have a large project proposal, the best way to go about funding is the break it up into smaller under £15k funding applications rather than one big over £15k proposal. For example one for research and development, one for the initial performance and one for touring.
Key takeaways from Grants for the Arts Fringe Academy:
Keep in mind that The Arts Council award public money, so although the application process may seem ruthless, it is in place to ensure valid and purposeful spending. But don’t be too put off, they exist to fund projects of high artistic quality and audience engagement. So if this sounds like you, then start building that application!
