Let's Create Jubilee Fund - Supporting the Creative Arts including Dance

The Let's Create Jubilee Fund is now open!

Here in Derbyshire there should be enough funds to award between 10 and 30 Derby and Derbyshire organisations. Applicants will be able to apply for grants of up to £10,000, and are encouraged to partner with established artists, creatives and cultural organisations to develop their activities.

For those wanting to apply for a larger sum (£5k – £10K) you will be encouraged to partner with an artist, creative or cultural organisation that has been in receipt of Arts Council England (ACE) funding within the last 4 years to help deliver their project. Foundation Derbyshire can help you source an artist or organisation that will fit the bill!

ACE are looking for local community groups (not necessarily existing arts groups) who want to create something new to mark the occasion, so not what you usually do on a day to day basis.

Artforms which ACE supports includes dance and combined arts – including festivals and carnivals.

The creative or cultural activity must take place in June 2022 (not before or after), although activities to prepare for / rehearse ahead of time are allowed from April 1st

Ideas on how to use the fund includes:

  • A specially commissioned song to be performed at a local venue
  • A dance or show for the local community
  • A mural or community art piece for permanent display

However, these are just a flavour. Think creative, think differently, think fun and engagement!

Key Dates:

  • Application opening date: 4th January
  • Application closing date: 28th February
  • Decision Date: Last week of March
