Old Possum’s Practical Trust makes grants to projects which fall within artistic, aesthetic, literary, musical and theatrical criteria. All applications must demonstrate a high level of sustainability and contextual impact. Priority will be given to those which have an impact on future literary work and display enterprise in their artistic endeavour.
Grants typically fall within £500 – £5,000. The Trustees do, however, retain the right to give discretionary grants, and development grants, outside the criteria listed above, but do so only in exceptional circumstances.
Deadline: Continuous rolling programme.
