Find out more about what kinds of funding are available to artists, creatives and community organisations in Coventry and Warwickshire.
Artists, creatives and cultural organisations from across Coventry & Warwickshire can find out how to source vital funding from major regional and national bodies at an event this July.
The Coventry City of Culture Trust has organised a Meet the Funder event on Wednesday 17th July, at Nuneaton Co-Op Sports Club to highlight the types of funding available and how to apply for them.
The drop-in event, which runs from 3pm to 6pm, will include some of the largest trusts, foundations, advising and funding bodies from right across the country including Arts Council England, National Lottery Heritage Fund and The Prince’s Trust.
Others attending include National Lottery Community Fund, the Coventry and Warwickshire Local Enterprise Partnership (CWLEP) Growth Hub, Heart of England Community Foundation and BBC Children In Need with many more organisations also represented at the event.
James Trowsdale, Head of Trusts and Foundations at Coventry City of Culture Trust, said it was an incredible opportunity for local artists, creatives and cultural and community organisations to find out the best places to source funding – and how best to do it.
He said: “We naturally have lots of groups and individuals contacting the Coventry City of Culture Trust about funding and we wanted to showcase the whole host of opportunities that are available.
“There are many sources of funding around arts and culture but they each have different criteria and, therefore, we believe this is a great way to highlight what is out there, who to go to and how best to do it.
The format of the event is a market hall with opportunities to have 1-2-1 conversations with funders and advisors.
