The new grants will support professional creative individuals and organisations, as well as community groups, supporting the diverse cultural landscape of Wakefield to flourish, particularly as we build towards Year of Culture 2024.
Wakefield Council have launched four new grant streams for cultural investment across Wakefield District. The new grants will support professional creative individuals and organisations, as well as community groups, supporting the diverse cultural landscape of Wakefield to flourish, particularly as we build towards Year of Culture 2024.
There are four grant streams available for arts, cultural and heritage activity:
- Culture Everywhere Micro Grants – for community groups, charities, CICs, and other non-culture organisations to run small arts and culture projects, activities, and events for their local communities
- Made in Wakefield Small Grants – for short term projects, with a focus on providing support quickly to artists and creative organisations.
- Made in Wakefield Large Grants – for significant new creative work, or larger participatory project with communities, that may have longer term impact.
- Culture for Everyone Grants - to enhance the accessibility offer and provision to cultural activities across Wakefield for D/deaf, disabled, and neurodiverse creatives, audiences, and participants.
There are three rounds for each grant, with varying deadlines from 18 April to 9 January 2023.
We're holding an information session with Jenny Rogers, the Cultural Development Manager at Wakefield Council. The online session is on Wednesday 25 May from 12.30pm - 1.30pm, come along to learn about the funding streams and ask any questions.
