2022 Cultural Development Grants: Creative and Communities Sector Engagement

This November and December the Cultural Development team at Wakefield Council, Jenny Rogers – Cultural Development Manager and Matthew Harrison-Lord – Cultural Development Officer – are out across the district running drop in sessions and focus groups alongside an online survey to engage creatives and communities in a conversation about our developing plans for grant support from April 2022.

We want to connect with individuals and organisations from across the Creative Sector who have previously received funding, or are interested in applying for funding in the future, to capture ideas and insights to ensure our future grants can create accessible, inclusive and inspiring opportunities for our creative and community sectors.

Please join in the conversation by attending one of the events or digital sessions specially designed for the Creative Sector below, and fill out our online survey HERE before 10 am on Monday 13th December too. We want to hear from everyone so please to take part in the engagement sessions, complete the online survey and let your friends, colleagues and networks know too.

Please refer to our schedule of events below and follow the links for more details. We are looking forward to hearing from you soon!

Jenny and Matthew
