Arts Council Project Grants: easier, faster, more successful
Make your project happen by writing your next grant with us in July. This class focuses on Arts Council England Project Grants – what they’re looking for, our top secret tips and tricks, and how to write killer applications that will dramatically improve your success rate. (FYI – our IRL spaces are all SOLD OUT – but online-only tickets are still available!)
We will cover:
- The fundamentals of the (new) ACE structure
- Key language they’re really looking for
- Project budgeting for success
- Where to expand on your ideas – and where to cut back
What you get
- Practical learning: a 2-hour class and seminar, plus a follow-up group coaching session later in the month and takeaway resources – designed to apply learning to your actual projects.
- Personalised support: Get un-stuck with us with an optional one-to-one coaching session.
- Networking & social time: We facilitate proper (and properly fun) networking, plus you get to join our online community of badass creatives, forever.
Who is it for?
- The next wave of culture leaders who want to work more dynamically
- Practitioners who want to regain control over their projects, finances, and career
- Anyone who wants work smarter, stress less, and co-create a better sector
Where is it?
We hold courses in-person in East London, but if you’re not in the big smoke (or just super busy), it’s easy to join live online or watch back any sessions you missed.
- Sprints are run by Social Convention founders Nat and Cim
- We bring together everything we’ve learned during our combined 50-odd years in this industry, 3 years of research and 2 x master’s degrees in this stuff
- Together, we’ve raised almost £7 million from public funds in the last 10 years
- We’ve both been creative practitioners, freelancers, arts execs, and consultants…so we get it!
