Creative Civic Change is a new programme to help you make positive change in your community using the arts and creativity.
The programme will provide funding as well as other support, like advice and mentoring, to at least 10 local areas in England over the next three years. We want to support creative projects and activities led by local communities, so you can achieve your vision for your area.
At this stage, we are inviting you to say if you want to get involved. We will then select some communities to work with us from autumn 2018 onwards – together we will develop your ideas further, and decide how best the programme can help with delivering those plans from spring 2019 (and for up to three years after). In this stage, we will identify how much funding might be needed to support your ideas (between £50,000 and £300,000 in each local community).
We are interested in sharing experiences and learning from the programme to inspire others to use the arts and creativity to make positive change.
The programme is a partnership between the Big Lottery Fund, the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation and Local Trust.
