Our arts and culture fund is set to reopen for new submissions.
Cultural organizations that submit successful applications between Tuesday 1 November and Wednesday 30 November will receive funding of between £2,500 and £30,000.
Funding will be used to support exhibitions, events and activities in 2023 to engage the community and benefit residents.
After the announcement of the fund in December 2021, 200 applications were received. 47 of them were successful.
Spread over five years, the £1 million fund aims to support Essex’s arts and culture sector.
Collective arts projects including music, theatre, dance, visual arts, literature, festivals and carnivals, museums and the creative sector can apply.
To encourage applications, a virtual launch event is being held on Tuesday 1 November at 4pm. The event will provide an opportunity to ask questions and hear from previously successful applicants. Find out more or book a place on the Mercury Theater website.
