Creative Coffee – Arts Council England Project Grants

After a brief closure of the fund in the immediate aftermath of the Covid-19 crisis, Arts Council England has announced that National Lottery Project Grants will reopen on 22nd July. Join Terry Adams, ACE
Relationship Manager for Diversity, to discuss the grants in the light of updated guidance being produced for the relaunch.

National Lottery Project Grants is Arts Council England’s open access programme for arts, museums and libraries projects. The fund supports thousands of individual artists, community and cultural organisations. Reading Fringe Festival has run surgeries with Terry and his colleagues for local artists and organisations for the past few years. We can’t do it in person this year, but we’re delighted to have Terry with us again digitally. Whether you just want to see if there have been any changes or you’re completely new to ACE project grants, join us for this session. Reading Borough Council Cultural Development Officer Lara Stavrinou will also be available to discuss how she can support with applications and broker partnerships for people in the local area.
