STEAMhouse Online: Working With Arts Council England
Wednesday, 16 December 2020
2 – 3.30 pm
From National Lottery Project Grants to Developing your Creative Practice, Arts Council England funds organisations, artists, community groups, and others.
In this informal, online workshop hosted by STEAMhouse, Bryony Windsor, Relationship Manager (Visual Arts) at Arts Council England, will introduce the different funding streams available and offer guidance on how you can make a strong application.
It will be a useful introduction if you have never applied for funding before, and a handy refresher if you have applied before, but want to know more about Let’s Create, Arts Council England’s new ten-year strategy.
The session will include time for you to ask questions you might have about the different funding streams, and
Arts Council England more broadly.
Bryony Windsor joined Arts Council England (ACE) in July 2018 as Relationship Manager, Visual Arts, Midlands. Bryony has a background in visual arts, specialising in craft and design which she studied at university. Prior to joining ACE, Bryony was Head of Exhibitions at the National Centre for Craft & Design (an Arts Council NPO) and Assistant Director at Scotland’s oldest commercial gallery, The Scottish Gallery, Edinburgh.
What is STEAMhouse?
STEAMhouse is a space to experiment, test and develop new knowledge. At the project’s heart are five key principles conversation, exploration, collaboration, openness and newness.
Open since early 2018, the first phase of STEAMhouse was created by Birmingham City University in partnership with Eastside Projects and funded by the European Regional Development Fund and Arts Council England. It invited original business thinkers to collaborate and innovate, engaging with hundreds of SMEs in the Greater Birmingham & Solihull Local Enterprise Partnership area.
Phase 1.5 launched in April 2020 and is focussed on supporting businesses – which includes self-employed, sole trading artists – from across England to access and explore the potential of digital technologies to help develop businesses, artworks, practices and creative services.
