Open Access Round 8 Open!

Open Access Round 8 Open!

The Open Access Award supports activities that build audiences and promote artistic excellence in the Black Country. Whether you’re a professional artist, performer or community group who have never experienced an arts activity before, this could be for you.

Open Access is open to individuals, groups and organisations to apply but project activity must take place within Sandwell, Walsall or Wolverhampton. Open Access is a flexible award to support the seed of a great idea through to the growth of a great project. If it builds audiences, connects local people with professional artists and brings great performance, art and creativity to the Black Country, open access could help you make it happen.

There are three levels of awards:
Seed (up to £500)
Grassroots (up to £2,000)
Growth (up to £4,000)

Deadline for applications is Friday 21 April at 5pm.

Creative Black Country has two exciting Landmark projects in the pipeline for this year and we’re looking for Open Access applications which can align activity with upcoming Landmark events.
