Are excited to share their plans for their Youth-Led Creativity funding. Co-designed with Esmée’s Involving Young People Collective, reopens to applications from 14 February.

The Youth-Led Creativity programme builds on young people’s power to make change, use creativity to enhance their lives, develop their careers, and influence the world around them.

We are focusing our support on work led by and for young people who have less access to creative programmes or who are underrepresented in arts and culture.

They will award £1m in 2024. They will consider requests for project and/or core costs, and single or multi-year grants. The maximum limit that can be applied for is £120k for up to three years. They expect to make 8 to 12 grants. A Learning Programme will run alongside the funding.

Expressions of interest deadline to submit an Expression of Interest is 5pm on 15 March 2024.
