Find out about arts in the South East
Welcome to our arts commission site
We are a charity based in the South East. We offer funding and support to a wide range of local groups, organisations and individuals, and nurture projects that enrich the arts in the community. We work closely with local councils to ensure our services benefit people living, working or studying in the area.
Every year, we fund between thirty and forty creative arts projects. We support a number of different art forms including dance, theatre, visual arts, film, photography, literature, spoken word and music. We have a professional development bursary for artists as well as other funding opportunities. We also deliver our own exciting projects through our own initiatives fund.
Call for Artists working with older people
The south-east’s programme dedicated to two year arts programme for older people with mental health issues including dementia is looking to develop a core team of artists. We are offering a specialist training scheme for 4 artists of any discipline with some experience in the field, who are interested in developing their skills in a range of venues including small groups and one-to-one settings which include people’s homes.
The programme offers small-scale funding for arts projects through two funding strands. We believe even a small grant can make a big difference. If you are planning an arts project or event in the south-east area that requires funding, we would like to hear from you. Please check our guidelines to see if you are eligible to apply. Applicants must live, work or study in the South East and awards are open to both organisations and individuals.
