New Application Process

We've changed the way you can apply for an arts grant for Creative Professionals and Organisations

We’ve changed the way you can apply for a grant

From now on you need to discuss your project with one of our Development Officers who will send you a link to an application form if they think it’s suitable for us to consider funding.

For Large Grants this new process is already in place.

If you started an online application, but didn’t submit it before 17 January 2018, you will no longer be able to access it and you’ll need to speak to a Development Officer to get a new form. However you will have been emailed a copy of any data you input before that date when you last saved your work, and which you can cut and paste into a new application..

The next deadline for Large Grant applications is May 9th 2018.

For Small Grants the new process came into operation on 17 February 2018.

If you started an online application before then but didn’t submit it, you will no longer be able to access it, and you’ll need to speak to a Development Officer to get a new form. However you will have been emailed a copy of any data you input before that date when you last saved your work, and which you can cut and paste into a new application.

If you have a project that you think might be suitable to apply for funding, please email details to development@arts.wales. If you’ve already been working with a Development Officer you can contact them direct.

Please include in your email the following information:

  • Your name and the name of the organisation that will be applying (if appropriate)
  • Project title
  • The grant strand you’re hoping to apply to
  • A description of your project
  • How much funding you want to apply for
  • The location of the project

One of our Development Officers will contact you to discuss your idea and they will send you a link to the application form when they’re satisfied you’re ready to apply.

Please note that we will not be able to release application forms until the first week of March, however you can start discussing your project with a Development Officer before then.

For the time being the application form itself will not change, so if you’ve applied to us before you will be familiar with the format.

If you have any questions about the new process please contact us at grants@arts.wales. Questions about projects should be emailed to development@arts.wales.
