Many of our members and associates are planning to submit applications to Arts Council England within the next three months, to either the National Portfolio Organisation (NPO) strand, or Grants for the Arts (GFA).

To help people gear up, we're offering a free workshop to help people build their strategic case for support, in a friendly and creative way before bid-writing begins in earnest.

The workshop is an opportunity to crystalize thinking about the unique contribution of your organisation/project/event and how it adds value to the wider arts and cultural ecology in Gloucestershire and beyond. It’s also an invitation to contribute your ideas about Create Gloucestershire's future in the arts and cultural sector.

It is taking place on:

Friday 15th November, 10am-1pm followed by lunch (to reward thinking!)

at Waldorf College, The Centre for Science & Arts, 13 Lansdown, Stroud, Gloucestershire GL5 1BB

If you are a member or associate and interested in attending, email to book a place.

If you’d like to come but aren’t yet a member you are welcome to join – membership is free and further details are available here.
