Rolling grant fund
Location(s): NewcastleApply online
This rolling grant programme seeks to embed and embellish creativity for all residents in Newcastle upon Tyne.
Activities should take place within a defined financial year (either 23/24 or 24/25) and will grow the contribution of cultural activity to social, educational and economic wellbeing in the city by supporting the Cultural Strategy.
Decisions are made bi-monthly by an independent panel. Current deadlines are confirmed as: 4 Jan, 27 Feb, 25 April, 4 July and 22 August
Please take the time to read the supporting information, in the document attached below, in full before making an application. This provides further information about the cultural strategy. A supporting statement making reference to this is a key part of the application process.
Independent, not-for profit organisations delivering activity in Newcastle upon Tyne. Unlike previous rounds, eligibility is not limited only to cultural organisations. Other
community organisations who can demonstrate a creative ethos and have strong cultural partnerships in place are also encouraged to apply.
Please note that organisations who have been awarded NCIF core funding for 2022-25 are not eligible to apply.
This fund does not replace the Newcastle Fund which will continue to give grants, including to the arts, for work that fulfils the aims of the Council and the Newcastle Fund.
