Artists, performers, producers and curators of Blackpool & Wyre – come and join us for a FREE workshop to help shape and develop your Grants for the Arts applications.

The first part of the day will be led by Arts Council England officers Anna Hassan and Imogen Ashby with a presentation and discussion of the G4A funding scheme and how to develop the best application possible,  whilst highlighting some of the common mistakes applicants make.

If you would like more tailored advice bookable 1 to 1 surgery sessions are available after lunch, where you can go into more detail about your ideas or follow up for feedback on previous applications that have been unsuccessful.

Whilst others are having 1 to 1s with the Arts Council team, Jenny Rutter, LeftCoast’s Creative Development Manager, will be on hand delivering a short practical workshop going through all the individual questions on the G4A form – so you will leave well prepared to get that application started!

There will also be an opportunity to learn about our new Future Popular funding stream, which can help you secure the match funding you need for your ACE G4A bids.

When: Monday 10th July

Where: FYC, CHURCH STREET, BLACKPOOL, FY1 3PS
