Coventry UK City of Culture Fund

26 June 2018

Having won the title ‘UK City of Culture 2021’ the Coventry City of Culture Trust is keen to support existing and potential partners as they seek to play a full and active role in the run up to 2021.

The Coventry UK City of Culture Fund has been launched by the Coventry City of Culture Trust in partnership with the Heart of England Community Foundation, which will administer the fund.

There are two streams of funding available for artists, charities and other organisations to apply for.

The first is the Get Ready Fund, with grants of up to £2,000 available, which can support a range of activity to help prepare for 2021.

That could be everything from research, development and feasibility studies through to covering the costs of training or skills building courses.

The second is the Road to 2021 Fund and this offers grants of up to £10,000.

It is aimed at those who want to trial projects which may form part of the programme in 2021, or to develop new partnerships across the arts and cultural sector.

Those applying for grant funding are being encouraged to consider the four themes of Coventry’s UK City of Culture programme – Being Human, Moving, Underground and Reinvention, and to think about how their proposed activity will help to achieve step changes across the city.

All applications will be received by the Heart of England Community Foundation, which will manage the whole process on behalf of the Coventry City of Culture Trust.

The funding programme will be open on a rolling basis until the fund is expended. Applicants will hear an outcome within 13 weeks of submitting a complete application.

The fund relaunched in April 2019, application forms and information can be found here: http://www.heartofenglandcf.co.uk/coventry-2021-r2/
