During Covid the SDAC awarded far fewer grants that we do normally, and this has put us in a position to launch a one-time grant specifically for the purpose of the long-term benefit of the arts in Stafford Borough. Until the end of 2022 we are accepting applications for grants of up to £2000 to Arts groups and individual event organisers to encourage new and exciting Arts activities in Stafford Borough. We want to create fresh opportunities that will boost the Arts.
The grants will be awarded for events and activities that are new, innovative, involve new people of all ages creatively, create new audiences, enable continuing activity in the Arts (legacy, sustainable) promote awareness of Stafford Borough as a centre for the Arts. Anything that will have a long lasting benefit can be considered.
This grant would be payable in addition to any other grants you may have received, but only one application per person / organisation can be made. Also, the normal grant form does not need to be made. Instead please make representation to the secretary in email with some details about your idea, and then we shall contact you to discuss the idea further.
So, thinking hats on!
