Grants for arts and cultural activities in Staffordshire Moorlands

Thu 17 Oct 2019

A grants scheme offering grants of up to £500 for arts activities is relaunching in Staffordshire Moorlands.

The aim of the grants scheme is to encourage more Moorlands residents to get involved in arts and cultural activities, increase the range of activities available to them, and enable participants to access training and workshops.

Individuals, community groups, charities, not-for-profit companies and other social enterprise organisations are all eligible to apply. Individuals may be awarded up to £300 and organisations up to £500.

Arts activities which can be funded include visual arts and crafts; photography, film and video; local history groups; performing arts such as drama, music, dance and street arts; graphics, design & new technologies; and literature, poetry, script writing.

The grants can be used for example for purchasing equipment, putting on events, training and workshops, publicity and marketing, volunteer expenses and transport.

The grants scheme is funded by Staffordshire Moorlands District Council and administered by local charity Support Staffordshire in conjunction with the Biddulph, Cheadle and Leek Arts Forums.

Guidance on how to apply and the application form can be found below.
