Applications for Arts Council England’s Developing Your Creative Practice fund are now open, with a significantly increased budget.

There will be four rounds between October 2020 to October 2021, starting with this first round that closes on Thursday 5 November. Applications are open to anyone with at least one year of experience, outside of education. It supports individual cultural and creative practitioners to take time to focus on their creative development and you can apply for between £2,000 to £10,000. Read the full guidance online here.

Led by Hannah Bentley (ACE Theatre Relationship Manager, North) and Gloria Lindh (ACE Touring Relationship Manager, North), this session will cover everything you need to know about DYCP as well as including an opportunity to ask any questions you might have about your application.
