Arts & Culture Fund – Merseyside

The Arts and Culture Fund – Merseyside is a small grants programme financed by the European Social Fund, offering awards of up to £5,000.

In partnership with Community Foundation for Merseyside, the regions biggest community funder, Liverpool Centre for Arts Development is offering help and guidance with the application process and providing outreach and support for the programme.

Constituted groups set up for charitable purposes can apply for the fund, which is aimed at smaller voluntary sector organisations that want to participate in Liverpool’s European Capital of Culture 2008 programme.

Successful applicants will be those that bring added value to the cultural and creative life of Merseyside, help improve skills, confidence and self-esteem and improve employment prospects.

The deadline for applications is Friday 20th April 2007.
