A charity or arts organisation wishing to receive support in the form of funding which they may then distribute on behalf of artists should contact the Secretary of the Trust in the first place by email. Please give a brief description there of your organisation and the type of support you already give, and some indication of why your wish to request help from the Trust. 

If your organisation is considered eligible, we shall contact you and discuss how you may make an application. 

This is a different procedure from before. Charities which already receive money from the Trust will no longer need to make further applications on-line.  They should contact the Secretary by email. 

Individual or small groups of artists should proceed via the Artists tab.

Please Note

Grants will only be given for circumstances relating to the accommodation and board costs of eligible and deserving artists, and not for general funding. The awards will usually be in the form of block grants for dispersal with specific conditions applied. The funds must be used to help pay for a residential stay by beneficiaries, stays which are otherwise subsidised by the charity itself.

Applications Status

  • The website is closed for applications due to the current health crisis. The next deadline for applications will be announced as soon as possible, but is unlikely to be before January 2021.
