Applications will only be considered from arts organisations who meet the following criteria:

  • An established arts organisation of any kind (including museums). This could be a charity or a regulated social enterprise, such as a Community Interest Company. In this case, ‘arts organisation’ means an organisation whose primary purpose is around the arts and creativity broadly defined. Applicants working in partnership with relevant community groups and sharing resources are encouraged to apply.
  • Arts organisations that are Global Majority-led. There is no ‘official’ definition of Global Majority Communities. In this context, it will be used to mean communities that experience racism in the UK, including Gypsy, Roma and Traveller communities.
