Want to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee creatively?

Grants of up to £10,000 are available for not-for-profit organisations in England to organise and deliver creative and cultural events that engage local communities for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee in early June 2022.

Seed would love to hear from YOU if you have an idea for an event in your community that will celebrate the Queen’s Jubilee between Thursday 2nd and Sunday 5th June 2022.

The event would need to engage with at least one of the following art forms supported by Arts Council England:
o Combined Arts, including carnivals and festivals;
o Dance;
o Library services;
o Literature;
o Museum services;
o Music;
o Theatre and/or
o Visual Arts.

Grants can be used for:
o Artist fees (both creating and delivering the event);
o Costs of making your event accessible to all, such as BSL interpreters, translators, additional signage;
o Costs of organising events and people needed to manage the project;
o Food and non-alcoholic drinks;
o Marketing cost and promotion of the event;
o Materials or equipment needed for the activity;
o Overheads relating specifically to the project, such as insurances, and
o Volunteer expenses.

SEND US YOUR IDEA by 4th February 2022 and we will select the best idea (or combination of ideas) and work with you to:
partner with an artist(s), and/or arts organisation(s) and develop an application for the funding from Arts Council England – an if successful in obtaining that funding, deliver your event in partnership with you and the rest of your community!
