Creative people and places fund opens for round two applications

  • Date: 19 September 2012
  • Area: National

Round two of applications for the Creative people and places fund opened today, Wednesday 19 September.

The Arts Council wants more people to experience and be inspired by the arts, irrespective of where they live or their social, educational or financial circumstances. The Creative people and places fund will focus our investment in parts of the country where people's involvement in the arts is significantly below the national average, with the aim of increasing the likelihood of participation.

A total of £37 million is available over two funding rounds to establish around 15 Creative people and places projects between 2012 and 2016. Proposals will be for between £500,000 and £3 million over three years. In round two the amount available is around £20 million. You can read a list of successful applicants to round one here.
