Bluecoat has invited new Creative Community residents Rule of Threes to collaboratively deliver a short support programme for artists based in the North West who want to apply to Arts Council England (ACE) funding programmes between now and September 2021. These programmes - which are open to individual artists, creatives and collectives - are to help with DYCP (Develop Your Creative Practice) and Project Grants.

Pooling knowledge with Bluecoat’s expert Programme team, Rule of Threes bring an outstanding track record in supporting diverse artists to achieve funding for their work.

This free funding support programme will include 2 online small group learning sessions, email and WhatsApp support, troubleshooting and application review. A supportive peer learning structure will enable everyone to produce strong applications.

First online sessions – one for each funding programme: DYCP and Project Grants - will take place on Zoom on Tue 6 and Wed 7 July, with second sessions later in July, and application reviews offered in August/September 2021.

Places are limited. To register your interest please email nina.n@thebluecoat.org.uk with the subject heading Arts Council England Application Support by 12 noon on Fri 25 June.

Please include: a few short sentences or bullet points that outline your project idea or practice; indicate whether you plan to apply for DYCP or Project Grants.

Let us know about any access needs you may have too. If you have a disability or neurodivergency that makes it difficult for you to access ACE‘s application processes please also let us know, we may be able to help you with funded access support for your application.
