NESTA Cultural Impact Development Fund

The Fund provides small-scale repayable finance to socially driven arts and cultural organisations working with the people and communities in greatest need.

Objectives of the fund are to:

  • Enable enterprising, ambitious organisations in the arts and cultural sector to take on small-scale repayable finance in order to achieve social outcomes and financial resilience
  • Increase the capability of arts and cultural organisations to achieve, monitor, evaluate, and articulate their intended social impact.

Arts and culture organisations based in England are eligible to apply, including:

  • Arts and cultural venues
  • Museums, libraries and archives
  • Non-venue based organisations (e.g. touring organisations, production companies, festivals, etc.)
  • Sector support organisations (e.g. development agencies, workspace providers, cultural education organisations)
