BBC Performing Arts Fund (UK)

The BBC Performing Arts Fund has announced that it is now accepting applications for community dance projects. The Fund has a total of up to £200,000 available and groups and individuals can apply for grants of between £500 – £5,000. Applications are welcomed from groups and individuals working across the UK with all age groups and dance styles. The fund aims to encourage participation and audience development. It also aims to enable groups to undertake more challenging projects through commissions and collaborations with professional artists and other local organisations. The type of activities that can be funded can include for example:

  •  sending key members of a Group on a training course
  • running workshops with the intention of encouraging and attracting new members to join in
  • engage experts to provide master classes to improve the overall standard of the Groups performances; etc. 

 Each year the fund focuses on a specific art form.  The focus for 2011 is dance; in 2012 it will be music and in 2013 theatre.  The deadline for applications is the 12th July 2011. For more information visit: http://www.bbc.co.uk/performingartsfund/grants
