Working with the new ACE National Lottery Project Grants & DYCP Grants
About this event
If you’re planning to submit either a National Lottery Project Grants or DYCP Grant application and want some help to get your head around the new application process, this is for you.
The Lancaster Arts Partnership invite you to join us for an open, interactive group session explaining the latest changes made to Arts Council National Lottery Project Grants and DYCP (Developing Your Creative Potential) grant streams, with ACE Relationship Managers Nikki Harrison-Davis (Combined Arts) and Natalie Crompton (Theatre ).
About the event
On 22 November 2021, ACE launched a new iteration of the National Lottery Project Grants, its open access programme for arts, libraries and museums projects. The fund supports thousands of individual artists, community and cultural organisations.
Key changes see an under £30k and an over £30k application with 10 week and 12 week turnarounds respectively; and the return of 10% match funding. The changes to the application process are also quite significant.
Join ACE Relationship Managers Nikki Harrison-Davis and Natalie Crompton for an interactive group session on using the new National Lottery Project Grants (NLPG) and Developing Your Creative Potential grants (DYCP).
The session will walk you through NLPG and DYCP and the changes that have been made, and will allow time for questions.
There is a lot to get through so PLEASE do prepare by reading the guidance at: https://www.artscouncil.org.uk/ProjectGrants and https://www.artscouncil.org.uk/DYCP
