Make the Most of South Tyneside is designed to support creative practitioners living and working in South Tyneside make the most of the area’s assets to commercialise their practice.
As part of this project, South Tyneside Cultural Development and the South Tyneside Cultural Partnership Group via Create North are offering up to 5 grants of £1000 each for artists and creative practitioners to develop pilot projects
The grant is designed to enable artists and creative practitioners in South Tyneside to research and develop a product or service that will add value to their business proposition. We expect that successful applicants will test an idea, create something or pilot a project, rather than only engage in desk research.
We are particularly keen to award grants that also add value to the cultural offer and landscape of South Tyneside. This could include, for example, a programme of workshops linked to the strategic priorities of one of the cultural venues in the area, or the creation of an installation aligned with cultural programming in the area.
Who can apply?
This grant is open to artists, creative practitioners and creative organisations who are based in or work in South Tyneside.
Applicants must already be trading, having already registered with HMRC as a sole trader, or with Companies House.
Applications can be made from the 26th September 2022 and the closing date is the 14th October 2022
To find out what the funding is for and how to apply, we are offering an introductory workshop, led by Jane Shaw.
