Small Arts Grant

Are you passionate about the Arts, music, dance, theatre, supporting community groups?

If you are an arts professional, community group, local individual or arts organisation within the borough, we may be able to help with your creative initiative. All projects are to be for the benefit of our residents in Erewash. Erewash Borough Council offer small grants each year and we are pleased to announce despite some delays our usual grant is open for the remainder of the financial year until March 2021.

We have a small grants fund that not-for-profit organisations, voluntary groups and charities can apply to, to support the development of arts and culture within the borough. To qualify you need to be a constituted group with a bank account.

The maximum award available is anything up to £800. Successful candidates will need to evidence other sources of income in support of projects, this small pot usually works to match fund creative activity.

The total funding available is limited, so once the budget has been allocated for the year the grant programme is closed until the following April.
