Online Session: Demystifying how to apply to Arts Council Project Grants


This event has now passed – you can see the recording here.

Project Grants are one of the most popular topics discussed during our Artist Support Sessions here at Theatre Bristol. We have invited Jessica Cheetham, Executive Director of Spun Glass Theatre to deliver a 90 minute session to help demystify the process and there will be a Q&A at the end.

This event is free to attend.

This workshop will be recorded and available on our resource page afterwards. Jessica will focus on unpicking the Outcomes and Investment Principles detailed in the Let’s Create strategy for independent artists and very small arts organisations through a series of case studies.

The event will not go through word counts, attachments etc – there are many other events which are going through the form and what it requires – this event will look specifically at bringing the jargon language of the Outcomes and Investment Principles down to earth and giving practical points for how you can tell the story of your own projects whilst meeting the requirements for Arts Council funding.

Jessica has a wealth of experience in supporting individual artists and small organisations to successfully fund projects through ACE Project Grants. She works particularly with artists with dyslexia and a range of physical, mental health and neurological barriers to writing funding applications so will be approaching this session from that perspective – providing clear tools and explanations for you to apply to your own applications.

There will be a chance to ask questions about your own projects.

This session will have live captioning.

Disclaimer: this is not an official Arts Council England led event and will contain our own perspective on how to meet the funding criteria. Official ACE events are available.
