Applying for funding
The Guernsey Arts Commission has become the body for distributing public arts funding on the island. With funds allocated for arts events by the States of Guernsey annually (through Culture & Leisure and Commerce & Employment), applications can be made to the
Guernsey Arts Commission to receive:
- sponsorship matching
- travel grants
(or a combination of the above)
Applications are received throughout the year and we encourage submissions for events or projects from across the arts spectrum, from festivals to community workshops.
Those eligible to apply:
- Individuals, non-profit arts organisations and other people who use the arts in their work for the benefit of the local community.
Those not eligible to apply:
- Students – for tuition fees or activities directly related to their course of study.
- Commercial organisations, commercial galleries or commercial enterprises.
When to submit 2013 applications, (deadlines):
Tuesday 1st January
Friday 1st February
Friday 1st March
Saturday 1st June
Monday 1st September
Friday 1st November
IMPORTANT CHANGE FOR 2013: While the decision making meetings will run two weeks following submission of applications, it is important to note that from 2013, we will now only consider applications submitted at least two months prior to the project taking place. Based on feedback, this change will mean creating a clearer lead-in time for both you and us in terms of ways we can support, develop and promote your event. N.B. If this causes any concern, then please do get in touch with us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
