The lead applicant for the Creative Places Award can be a local authority, an arts organisation or a community development organisation. Whichever is the lead applicant; they must collaborate with and include (at least) both other organisation types as
partners to encourage a sustainable grassroots approach to creativity and local arts development. It will create new opportunities for local communities to decide, design and take part in brilliant arts experiences in the places where they live.
We will be seeking proposals with an asset driven approach focusing on what a place has, that can be built upon and developed rather than what it lacks. The approach will be inclusive and diverse and rooted in socially engaged practice and community development
principles. It will build on existing cultural strengths and be led by community participation and ideas and supported by artists.
Applicants can apply for the Creative Place Award or Research and Development Award. You must be a local authority, an arts organisation or a community development organisation in order to apply.
