The capacity of our region’s cultural organisations has, in many cases, been reduced, often as a result of funding constraints. This means they have been less able to develop their own sustainability plans, form consortia, bid for new funding or seize emerging opportunities.

The GBSLEP have launched a Cultural Capacity Development Fund call which is open from 3rd December 2019 and closes on 31st January 2020. This funding call will award grants between £2K-£10K.
