Each year our funding has concentrated on a different art form – dance, music or theatre – and has been distributed via two types of grant, one for individual artists and the other for community groups. Who these grants are aimed at can vary year on year.
Just answer a few questions below and find out if you are eligible to apply for funding from us.
Each year our funding concentrates on one of three art forms – dance, music or theatre.
If you are looking for funding for something outside of these areas, then unfortunately we are unable to help you.
We only offer funding to UK residents.
This is because the charity is funded through revenue from the voting lines of BBC One entertainment programmes. We are therefore devoted to providing opportunities and support for aspiring musicians and performers within the UK only.
Since 2011 we have had an annual art form focus for the Fund's work with two schemes launched each year - one for individuals and one for community groups.
In 2011 the focus was dance, in 2012 we looked at music, and in 2013 the focus is on theatre. Keep in touch with us for updates on new grants & opportunities.
