After pausing the grants programme earlier this year due to the coronavirus COVID 19 pandemic, Arts Network Sutton are pleased to announce that we are relaunching the programme with a specific round to focus on activity that can take place under the current restrictions. We are keen to support initiatives that have a digital or blended approach to engagement of audiences in Sutton. We see the current situation as an opportunity for artists and groups to develop and disseminate their practice using online and digital methods in ways that can access audiences that may have previously been hard to reach. We will also fund face- to- face activities that can safely take place under current guidelines (i.e. social distancing, test and trace etc.).

Any funded activity must follow government guidelines in relation to social distancing and all successful applicants will be asked to provide detailed relevant risk assessments for both online and face- to- face activity.

This round will be for activity taking place between November 2020 and March 2021, and the deadline for your applications is 5pm on Friday October 23rd. Head over to our Grants page for more details, guidance, and an application form.

We’d like to thank you for your patience while the programme was suspended, and wish you all the best with your applications.
