Digital Development Grants 2020

In response to the Covid-19 pandemic, we’re excited to announce the launch of our Digital Development Grants. As the current crisis continues to fuel a huge period of change, we’re keen to address the impact on the cultural sector and our regions’ children and young people.

Our Digital Development Grants have been designed to support organisations to research and develop their digital practice with children and young people through participation (including remote participation), engagement and developing audiences. We are also looking for applications that aim to explore social isolation and wellbeing within the context of the current challenging climate and beyond.


What are our Digital Development Grants?

These grants are for organisations to trial and test ideas around digital delivery across a 12-month period. We have grants available for £4000 each to support organisations and individuals in the East Midlands. You may work with partners from outside the region, but the main applicant must be based within the East Midlands. So if you’re an organisation that wants to trial and test ideas around digital delivery (across a 12 month period), then find out how to apply below.


How to apply

We are interested in proposals that will look at the involvement and support of Arts Award and Artsmark either in this project delivery or in future work. We will be looking for applications that look at the relationship between digital delivery and these two programmes.

The deadline for applications is 5pm on Monday 15th June.

To find out more information on how to apply, please download the application pack and application form below.
