Get advice about applying for funding for jazz based projects on 26 April 2016

Understanding the funding system and how to apply for funding for a jazz based project idea can seem a mysterious and challenging subject!

We’re pleased to announce that we’re working in partnership with Arts Council England (ACE) to try a new way to help individuals and organisations get practical advice on how to prepare to make a funding bid for their jazz based project idea.

Arts Council England’s Grants for the arts programme can fund a wide variety of activity including artistic and audience development, production and touring.

You can now apply to book a 40 minute Skype session with representatives from the Arts Council and Jazz North on Tuesday 26 April. This will be subject to availability if there is more demand than spaces.
