Funding Available: Ambition for Excellence Fund

Deadline for Expressions of Interest: 27 October 2017 (5pm).

The new £35.2 million Ambition for Excellence Fund will support organisations who want to produce high quality and spectacular events and works of art, particularly outside London. The fund will develop talent and leadership in organisations as well as supporting individual creative projects. Individual grants of between £100,000 and £750,000 can be applied for, across a period of up to three years.

Applications are accepted from national portfolio organisations, including private sector arts companies, community and charitable arts organisations, museums that are applying for arts projects and those primarily focused on one or more of the following: creating, producing, distribution and presenting the arts in England. Applications from partnerships can also be made. Consortia may include local authorities, museums, libraries, music education hubs, non-arts and commercial organisations.

Full details on all of these funds can be found on the Arts Council England website
