Application writing workshop: National Lottery Projects Grants (ACE)




Tuesday 27 April, 6-7:30pm & Thursday 29 April, 6-7:30pm

Mark Devereux Projects are pleased to offer our next online workshop to support artists & groups who are planning an application to Arts Council England’s National Lottery Projects Grants under £15k funding programme. Split over two evenings, Mark Devereux will share his extensive knowledge and experience building and writing successful applications over the last 12-years.

As one of the core funders of arts projects in the UK, Arts Council England grants can unlock and create important opportunities to help you realise ambitious projects and artworks. The online workshops (via Zoom) will take an in-depth look at the funders’ requirements and application process for the NLPG under £15k programme. Mark will dissect the questions – what they mean, the detail the assessors are looking for and give examples of the type of planning required to give the best opportunity for success.

This workshop is independent from Arts Council England, sharing the knowledge and experience Mark Devereux has built from previous successful grant applications.

Grant funding applications open for The Royal Docks’ summer festival, Join the Docks 2020





The Royal Docks Team has announced that grant applications for its unique summer festival, Join the Docks 2020, is now open to groups, organisations and individuals from across London. Activities large and small will be considered for this month-long summer festival, with a wide variety of grants available.

Join the Docks returns to London’s Royal Docks for a month-long celebration in August 2020. Organised by the Royal Docks Team, a joint initiative between the Mayor of London and the Mayor of Newham – the festival aims to inspire visitors and locals to discover and celebrate the area’s 4km of historic docklands as well as its beautiful parks, water, diversity, creativity and more.

Last year, the Royal Docks funded and hosted over 150 different events and activities ranging from heritage walks, silent disco tours, poetry workshops, gigs, art exhibitions and more.  In excess of 50,000 people, of all ages, attended from London, the UK and internationally.

Join the Docks is east London’s only waterfront, summer festival. The vast area of the Royal Docks has a rich social, trading, engineering and industrial history – once a centre of world trade for London. Today the Royal Docks is on the cusp of major transformation with thousands of new homes, jobs, public spaces and amenities coming forward as part of the area’s regeneration.  Investment in culture and community wealth building will ensure the Royal Docks re-emerges as a significant destination for business and tourism, with a reputation for nurturing local creative talent, investing in cultural facilities and curating a world-class programme to put the area on the map.

Grant applications are open to both new and existing activities. Proposed activities must take place in the Royal Docks between 7 August and 6 September 2020, be low cost to attend as well as be accessible and inclusive. While applicants do not need to be based in Newham, applications must include a partnership with an organisation based in the borough.  

All ideas for activities are welcome. Those who would like to take part have until Friday 17 April to apply. The Royal Docks will be hosting an open to all Q&A session regarding Join the Docks on Thursday 12 March at The Crystal building from 4:30 pm-6 pm.

WSFS grant helping fund DCAD dual-credit program at Cab Calloway



A $6,500 grant from WSFS Bank is helping to pay instructional costs of the dual-credit program recently launched by Delaware College of Art and Design at Cab Calloway School of the Arts.

Dual-credit – or dual-enrollment – programs allow high school students to take courses that count toward both their high school diplomas and their future college degrees. This saves students money on higher education expenses and helps them complete their associate’s or bachelor’s programs on time or even early.

DCAD, the Mid-Atlantic’s only two-year professional art and design college, offers associate of fine arts degree programs in animation, fine arts, graphic design, illustration and photography on its downtown Wilmington campus. Also located in Wilmington, Cab is a magnet middle and high school for performing and visual arts students administrated by the Red Clay Consolidated School District.

DCAD is offering “Figure Drawing” and “Animation I” at Cab for the 2018-19 school. Both classes are instructed by DCAD faculty member Aki Torii, who along with teaching and evaluating the students is providing mentorship and coaching as they produce pieces for their college application portfolios. Credits earned through the DCAD courses count toward degree programs at DCAD as well as at many other colleges and universities throughout the United States.

WSFS officials Vernita L. Dorsey, senior vice president, director of community strategy, and Terri Hasson, director of community reinvestment, recently gathered with DCAD and Cab representatives to celebrate the bank’s donation with a ceremonial check presentation. Joining them and Torii for the event were DCAD President Jean Dahlgren, DCAD Dean Katy Ro, Cab Assistant Dean Joe Hocking, Red Clay secondary education director Sam Golder and Red Clay Superintendent Mervin Daugherty.

Also participating were Emma Harkin, who is the only student of the 10 enrolled in the program this term who is taking both DCAD courses, and Meredith Little, who is taking “Animation I.” Emma previously attended DCAD’s Pre-College Studio Week during the summer of 2017 and, like many Cab Calloway students over the last 20 years, plans to earn an associate’s degree at DCAD before transferring into a baccalaureate program.

“DCAD is thrilled not only to be accelerating these students on their path to becoming artists and designers, but to be providing access to classes normally unavailable to them,” Dahlgren said. “We’re also so grateful to WSFS Bank for partnering with DCAD so that we can offer these benefits and experiences to the dedicated and talented students at Cab Calloway School.”

Dahlgren also noted that DCAD is seeking to develop dual-credit programs with other high schools in the area.

Creative Arts Initiative Artist(s)-in-Residence Program




Artist-in-Residence Program

Request for Proposals


The University at Buffalo established the Creative Arts Initiative (CAI) to provide opportunities for artists and performers to take up residencies in Buffalo during which they would be able to create and present new work and interact with community members including faculty, students, and Buffalo arts organizations in a variety of ways. The CAI has been dedicated to the creation and production of new work upholding the highest artistic standards of excellence while simultaneously fostering a complementary atmosphere of creative investigation and engagement among students, faculty, visiting artists, and the community.

Proposals may be submitted directly by artists outside the Buffalo area. Members of the UB and Buffalo arts communities are also welcome to propose projects to bring performing artists and creators to the region to create and present new work.

All fields of creative art are eligible to participate: music, film, plastic arts, visual arts, drama, writing, architecture, and so-called emerging disciplines. Companies and collaborating artists may apply. Both emerging artists and established artists are invited to participate.

This is the final year of CAI funding. For this last funding cycle, CAI hopes to fund only few projects, each of which has the promise of significant artistic and community impact. To submit a proposal, follow the guidelines below.

Guidelines and Application Procedure

The CAI is interested in artists who have demonstrated artistic excellence, and have achieved demonstrable professional accomplishment, or who, through the submitted works, display exceptional promise. Resident artists should use their residency to create new works, or complete works in progress. Your project description should describe your project and goals in specific detail.


Artists/companies must demonstrate a strong commitment to arts education and community involvement — such commitment must be directly addressed to the variety of opportunities that exist in the Western New York region, though national and international collaboration may also be an integral part of any proposal.

Resident artists will provide educational and community components. For some a public conversation about their work might be appropriate; for others, it might be a micro-seminar or a master class. It might be a semester-long encounter. Or it might be major interactions with the community’s arts organizations combined with interaction with the University community. CAI welcomes other creative methods of engaging students and the local community as well. Description of intended form of engagement should be included in all proposals along with information regarding communication with and buy-in from intended local partners.

The CAI is not able to provide accommodations for out-of-town artists at this juncture. Artists may request honorarium, travel expenses, housing expenses, and other expenses up to the New York State allowable rates. This should be included in the budget with your application.

Eligible disciplines:

This process is open to all artistic disciplines.

Review process:

Applications will be reviewed on the basis of:

  • The quality of the project concept.
  • Artistic excellence.
  • Artist engagement with UB students and the Buffalo community.

CAI Co-Directors will seek input from appropriate experts during the review process


Applications will be reviewed in the Fall for projects for the following academic year.

In order to be considered for the Fall 2019- Spring 2020 cycle, completed applications must be received no later than Nov. 11, 2018.

Semi-finalists will be identified in Nov. 2018 and may be asked to provide supplementary materials or respond to reviewer queries by Jan. 4, 2019.

Final decisions regarding residencies for 2019-20 will be announced in March 2019.

How to apply:

Interested parties should submit the Artist-in-Residence Proposal form online, and provide Artist CVs, and work samples via email to with "Artist-Proposal" and the proposer’s name in the subject line.

In order to be considered, all materials must be received no later than Nov. 11, 2018.
