There are three strands of funding available in this fund:
Properly constituted organisations are eligible to apply. These include: limited liability companies; community interest companies; charities or trusts; local authorities or statutory bodies.
The Fund is looking to support activity which is delivered mainly as large screen communal audience experience(s) rather than as small screen (digital device) private content consumption. However, projects which contain some activity on other platforms such as online or mobile apps are welcome, especially if they make a demonstrable contribution to audience development and show innovative approaches to achieving the Fund objectives.
Eligible costs include, but are not limited to: research and curatorial fees; staff; office costs; marketing; transportation; hospitality; and audit, monitoring and evaluation.
There is a rolling deadline for Strand 1 and 2, therefore applications can be made at any time. There are two formal deadlines for Strand 3 applications: 2 June 2014 (1pm) and 1 December 2014 (1pm).
