Who’s in the Zoom? Part 1: Arts Council England

After the Emergency Response funds of the first phase of the pandemic, Arts Council England has now re-opened its Project Grants and and is encouraging applications from individuals. There are also plans to reopen Developing Your Creative Practice funding in the Autumn.

There are some changes and there is some access support available for disabled artists to make applications. Each session has the same content, we’re holding two to allow people to have timing options.

  • The first is at 11.00am and the second at 6.00pm on Wednesday 5 August 2020.
  • Each will last approximately 45 minutes.
  • There will be a presentation including CC and BSL, with audio access features, and an opportunity to ask questions.
  • Please ensure your questions relate to grant applications please for best use of time.

These sessions will be hosted on Zoom by We Shall Not Be Removed members Andrew Miller and Ellie Page who will be joined by Claire and Aakash Bharania from Arts Council England.

It will include information such as when the next meeting is, who to get in touch with about a particular issue, and where you can find minutes in a number of accessible formats from previous meetings.
