Fusion Arts and Creative Dementia Arts Network (CDAN) present their unique intergenerational project; Save The Last Dance for Me.
We wanted Project Grants to be available as quickly as possible to support individuals and organisations to get activities up and running again, and to help people take their first steps in getting re-engaged with culture and creativity. We understand that the context applicants to Project Grants will be working in is very different in the post COVID-19 world. We will be taking the current context into consideration when we make our decisions, and we expect that the type of applications we receive will reflect the changed circumstances. Project Grants is already able to support a really broad range of types of activity. We can support projects that directly create and deliver creative and cultural activity and content for audiences, visitors and digital users, and also those that have a longer term impact on strengthening the sector, such as organisational development, research and development and sector support. We will continue to support a wide range of different applications, from organisations and from individuals.
We know that we will receive a high number of applications, and we will need to prioritise where our investment can make a significant difference at the moment. Because of the circumstances during this COVID-19 period, we will be particularly keen to support:
• applications from individual creative practitioners (including time to think and plan)
• research and development activity
• organisational development activity • live activity that aligns with the Government’s roadmap out of lockdown (applicants should stay up to date on the latest guidance)
• activity that closely aligns with our Equality Objectives
