The Open Access Award supports activities that build audiences and promote creative and artistic excellence across the Black Country.

Open Access is open to individuals, groups and organisations in Sandwell, Walsall and Wolverhampton. It 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.

The full amount available for the round is £7,500 across all 3 boroughs.
