Applying for Funding for the Arts
Mon 12 June 2017, 10:30 – 13:00 BST
We’re delighted to have teamed up with Lucy Jenkins, freelance curator and Durham County Council’s visual arts programme manager, to uncover the mysteries of applying for arts funding. Lucy will provide an overview of current funding agendas and buzzwords and then focus on Arts Council England’s Grants for the Arts programme using examples of successful applications as a basis for some practical work in completing an application.
Lucy has over twenty years’ experience as an art curator and fundraiser. She has worked with both historic art collections and contemporary artists and successfully raised funds from the lottery, public funding sources, trusts and foundations, and corporate sponsorship in both the arts and community and voluntary sectors. Recent work includes the curation of a number of interdisciplinary projects including Coming of Age: the Art and Science of Ageing (Great North Museum, Newcastle 2011 and GV Art, London) and The Great North Build (Great North Museum, Newcastle).
This professional development workshop is for emerging artists and other creative practitioners looking to commercialise their work. It has been funded by Arts Council England and Newcastle City Library
