Apply for a Grant

The remit of Worcester Arts Council is to ‘promote the arts in Worcester.’ Here is our constitution.

One of the ways we do this is by awarding grants of up to £500. Grant applications are considered at the Executive Committee meetings. For some recently approved grants, please see our News Page.

Members can apply for grants for things such as capital items, concerts, exhibitions or a guarantee against loss for a production. We have updated the grant application form to make it easier to fill in (we hope!) and incorporated more guidance notes. Please use the new form. If you wish to apply for a grant, the new form is here:
