Event Details

If you’re facing a blank page or writing your first bid, it can be daunting.

Here’s a collection of approximately 100 example extracts based on successful funding bids for arts projects, designed to de-mystify the process and spark ideas for your own applications.

What do I get?

Instant, on-demand access to this collection. For each of the questions commonly asked in funding bids, including the pre November 2023 ACE Project Grants**, you’ll see a selection of extracts from example answers to those questions.
You can access the resource whenever you want, as often as you want, to see examples relating to theatre, dance, visual arts, community and music projects and more.
You can look up a specific question or browse through the whole lot.

Bold text reads: Access the resource here!

About Christina Poulton Creative

I am an arts trainer and consultant and have worked for arts organisations and with individual artists across the UK, since Linkin Park were first topping the charts. I love working with people on their finance, policies, fundraising, organisational development and procedures – all the things that underpin the arts and allow amazing projects to happen. My fundraising experience covers the spectrum from raising small pots of money for community projects through to leading on fundraising strategy and successful multi year large-scale bids for Arts Council National Portfolio Organisations. My training is informed by extensive, current experience.

*The original price for this online course was £38.32. It has been subsidised by £28.32 per person via Lyrici Arts, taking the price to £10 per person. This subsidy is only applicable to creatives in Medway.

** Please note that the Arts Council examples applied to up the close of October 2023, when Arts Council England launched their new application format. Although the Funding Bid Example Bank includes Arts Council questions it has lots for trusts and lottery too and tips for bid writing generally. Please always double check deadlines and the full project grant guidelines to which you are applying.

This event is part of our Community Programme which is kindly funded by Arts Council England, Colyer Fergusson Trust, Esmee Fairbairn Foundation and Medway Council.
