The Arts Service of Ards and North Down Borough Council have opened their Arts Project Funding for a third and final time in this financial year. The Arts Project Fund is available to arts, community and special interest groups throughout the Ards and North Down Borough area who wish to enhance existing, and undertake new community arts activities. A maximum grant of £1,000 is available.

If you are a community group, special interest group or charitable organisation don’t miss out on this opportunity to access funding for arts-related activities and projects. The Arts Service are keen to support groups and charitable organisations who wish to undertake creative projects and activities. So, whether you would like to learn the art of juggling, photography or salsa, or whether you have a community sculpture or mural in mind, or maybe your group could create a film or a theatre performance -  please check out the funding criteria and see how it could benefit your group.

Amy McKelvey, the Community Arts Development Officer is on hand to give advice with application ideas so don’t delay, get the creative thinking caps on and don’t miss out on arts funding in the Ards and North Down Borough.

This round of funding is suitable for projects taking place from November 2017 – March 2018 and the deadline for applications 28September at 12.00pm.
