How to Access Arts Council England (ACE) Grants

Available until 11 Sep

A free workshop about applying to ACE Project Grants and other funds. Find out what’s changing and how to write your application.
Hear directly from Jessica Antwi-Boasiako, Relationship Manager at Arts Council England, about upcoming changes to the application process, and new ACE funding streams. You will have a chance to work in small groups, discussing your application and make a start answering the Project Grant application questions.

There will also be an opportunity to share your experiences and projects. The LEAN team will be on hand to offer advice and book 1:1s.

It is suitable for anyone with any level of experience in arts fundraising but particularly suited to those who are new to applying for funding or want to understand what’s changing in the application process. All those who live and/or work in Lewisham are welcome, regardless of art form or career stage.
