I work with cultural organisations and individual artists & freelancers to develop project ideas and write strong funding bids, with a particular focus on applications to Arts Council England. I act as a critical friend, first getting to know you and your project and where it fits into your career tragectory or business plan. I then work with you to strengthen your idea in line with ACE priorites, then help you present the project within the application process in the strongest possible way.
I’ve got a great track record – with over seventeen years of writing funding applications to ACE, I’ve only been rejected once. Furthermore, I was a Relationship Manager in Combined Arts at ACE, so I understand the process from both sides.
Depending on the complexity of the project, how advanced it is and your needs, I can work with you from an hour up to several days spread across a few weeks. I also run group Zoom sessions for individuals applying for Under £15k Arts Council England National Lottery Project Grants. Get in touch to see how I can help you.
