Arts in Redditch

Following the merger of Redditch Arts Council and Arts in Redditch, we will continue to operate the grant giving function of Redditch Arts Council.  There are two funds available.  Projects which support the visual arts and have an educational element can receive a grant from the Redditch School of Art Trust.  The maximum per project is £750.

The original Redditch Arts Council fund supports all art forms including performing, literary and culinary arts.  At one time supported by a Council grant, we are currently reliant on our residual funds and any transfer of capital from our fundraising activities.  Now that charitable status has been achieved we are able  to bid for capital funds from other sources.  The maximum grant is usually £500 but from 1st January 2017 we are introducing a special £100 start-up grant to get new activities off the ground.

All grants are voted on and agreed from a panel of local arts activitists.  All projects must be based in Redditch or to the benefit of Redditch people.
