Following discussions with artists, we have noticed there is a recurring theme surrounding a lack of support and accessibility to opportunities and arts funding applications. The creative sector deserves better than this – we want to collaborate by sharing our resources and experience.
We are offering a programme of artist development events and opportunities that take place either in hARTslane or online.
We currently offer:
Our group sessions normally cost £20 and one-to one online advice sessions are £40. For fees on application review and for more information please contact us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Ongoing / Normally 4-6 times a year and near the ACE DYCP deadlines
Sessions last 90 minutes
New dates are announced on our Instagram page
Are you an artist looking to further develop your practice but you are not sure how to?
Are you planning to apply for Arts Council England’s Developing Your Creative Practice (DYCP) programme and are looking for inspiration, advice and support?
Join our Developing Your Creative Practice funding application writing workshop. We will share our knowledge and experience to help you create a strong Arts Council DYCP application.
What to expect:
During the workshop we will take an in-depth look at the DYCP programme application process: eligibility criteria and access support, the questions and what ACE assessors are looking for, how to create a solid plan and a budget.
We will look at examples of successful applications and we will share useful tips and resources to help you develop your ideas, plan and write your own application.
The session will be friendly and informal. There will be plenty of opportunities for discussion and questions.
This workshop is tailored to those who are planning to apply to Arts Council England’s Developing Your Creative Practice programme. However, it will be beneficial to all those who want to take a moment to reflect on how to develop their practice and decide to apply in the future or just want to bring their practice to the next level and don’t know where to start.
What is a DYCP?
Arts Council England’s DYCP supports individuals who are cultural and creative practitioners and want to take time to focus on their creative development.
Run by Cristiana Bottigella (hARTslane director) & Rain Wu (Artist & lecturer)
Join us at hARTslane to get inspired and discover everything you need to know about artist in residence programmes:
Why you should go
What they are
Where to find them
How to apply…and be successful!
These sessions are bespoke and they can be booked as a one-off or as a series.
This is an opportunity to get practical advice, receive feedback on your work and find out more ways to support your practice. There is no expectation of prior knowledge about funding and project proposals.
The sessions are informal and conversational.
Participants can use the advice session as they choose. This could involve:
A creative review of a project idea
Practice development; plan of action and target-setting
Funding opportunities; where to start and how to select the right ones
Help finding partners and creating meaningful exchange in working with local communities
Reading and commenting on a funding application/artistic opportunity or residency
Each session is a confidential, relaxed discussion about your ideas or project to explore the key issues and challenges you have identified. An advice session generally ends with a clear set of tasks and priorities or resources in order to progress to the next stage of your creative journey.
Sessions last 1 hour and cost £40.
