About this Event

Artists, creatives and cultural organisations from across Coventry & Warwickshire can find out how to source vital funding from major regional and national bodies at an event in December.

Coventry City of Culture Trust has organised a Meet the Funder event on Tuesday 3 December at Coventry Central Hall (Warwick Lane, CV1 2HA) to highlight the types of funding available and how to apply for them.

The drop-in market place event, which runs from 2:30pm to 6:15pm will include some of the largest trusts, foundations, advising and funding bodies from right across the country including Arts Council England, National Lottery Communities Fund and The Prince’s Trust.

Others attending include National Lottery Heritage Fund, the Coventry and Warwickshire Local Enterprise Partnership (CWLEP) Growth Hub, Heart of England Community Foundation and BBC Children In Need with many more organisations also represented at the event.

James Trowsdale, Head of Trusts and Foundations at Coventry City of Culture Trust, said it was an incredible opportunity for local artists, creatives and cultural and community organisations to find out the best places to source funding – and how best to do it.

He said: “We naturally have lots of groups and individuals contacting the Coventry City of Culture Trust about funding and we wanted to showcase the whole host of opportunities that are available.

“There are many sources of funding around arts and culture but they each have different criteria and, therefore, we believe this is a great way to highlight what is out there, who to go to and how best to do it.”

The event is a drop-in event with opportunities to have initial one-to-one conversations with the following funders and advisers:

• Arts Council England

• PRS Foundation

• Charity Bank

• CW LEP Growth Hub

• Groundwork West Midlands

• Heart of England Community Foundation

• National Lottery Community Fund

• National Lottery Heritage Fund

• Warwickshire County Council

• Coventry and Warwickshire CDA

• Coventry and Warwickshire Reinvestment Trust

• Library of Birmingham - Intellectual Property Centre

• In Kind Direct
