Funding for individuals from Arts Council England

Arts Council England announced this week that they are reopening Developing your Creative Practice (DYCP). DYCP is fund to support individual cultural and creative practitioners to take time to focus on their creative development, with grants available up to £10,000.

They have provided new guidance, resources to help you apply and an update about how they’ve changed the programme to better support you during the pandemic.

You can apply for funding towards things such as research, time to create new work, travel, training, developing ideas, networking or mentoring. They have even developed a short quiz to help you decide if you’re ready to apply, and direct you to guidance and resources to help you develop your activity.

The fund opened for applications on the 15 October and closes on the 5 November 2020.
