The North East Fund for the Arts

The North East Fund for the Arts fund seeks to enable community groups to access professional, quality arts activities, on their own terms. Projects could therefore engage a community in arts activity for the first time, develop their engagement, or inspire participants to seek further opportunities in the arts. The project may lead to the creation of a piece of art but an ‘end product’ is not a requirement.  All art forms are invited.

A community for the purpose of grant-making is a group of people who will benefit as a result of the grant. They could be a geographical community or have a shared background, identity or interest.

Applications are invited from both community organisations and arts organisations.  The strongest projects will demonstrate partnerships and wider community involvement.

Decisions are made by a panel made up of an independent group of sector specialists, donors and artists.

Maximum grant size: £2000

Deadline: 4 March 2024
