Arts Council National Lottery: Project Grants

Arts & Culture National Lottery

Arts Council England (ACE) have launched their new Arts Council National Lottery: Project Grants open-access programme offering grants of between £1,000 – £100,000 for arts, museums and libraries projects, replacing Grants for the Arts.

The programme sets out to achieve ACE’s mission, ‘great art and culture for everyone’. Project Grants supports a broad range of not-for-profit projects that create new work and sustain quality to help new audiences across England to engage with arts and culture.

This programme supports projects focused on the following artforms and disciplines:

  • Music
  • Theatre
  • Dance
  • Visual arts
  • Literature
  • Combined arts
  • Museum practice (Accredited museums only)
  • Libraries (arts-focused projects only)

Any supported projects must have outcomes that focus on one or more of these artforms and disciplines. Projects may work with these artforms in other contexts. Examples might include:

  • creative media and the wider creative industries (for example, lm or audio, design, gaming);
  • technology, including digital technology (for example, virtual reality or live-streaming);
  • other non-arts organisations or settings (for example, residential care providers, or a science organisation); and
  • other non-arts cultural forms or sectors (for example, health and wellbeing, social inclusion, heritage or sport).

Applications must include at least 10% partnership funding from sources other than the Arts Council.

Deadline: Continuous rolling programme. Decisions on applications for £15,000 or less take six weeks. Decisions on applications for over £15,000 take 12 weeks.
