Grants for the Arts (GFA) is an Arts Council England funding stream that provides grants for a wide range of arts and creative projects. This session is for artists, practitioners and organisations who want to know more about GFA and explore if it could provide a source of funds for their creative ideas and projects.

This funding advice session will be run by Philip Butterworth, Lead Relationship Manager for Gloucestershire, Arts Council South West.  Following a general discussion, there will be an opportunity to have a 1-to-1 discussion with Philip about specific concerns.  These 1-to-1 sessions are limited and need to be booked asap.
