About the fund…

The Creative Practice Fund helps to finance extra-curricular artistic initiatives involving students in the School of Culture and Creative Arts. Consideration of funding will be given to any student-led creative project relating to the School’s subject areas of theatre, film, television, music, history of art and cultural policy research. Funding will also be available for creative practice workshops led by professional practitioners in the relevant disciplines and to artistic projects devised by staff. In these latter cases, applicants will have to demonstrate that School students are centrally involved in the funded activity.

Applications must centrally involve students (undergraduate or postgraduate) currently studying in the School of Culture and Creative Arts. Members of staff and students can submit jointly for projects.

How much is available?

For the Academic year, 2014-15, we have a total budget of £5500.

The maximum award for an individual project is likely to be £500, although in exceptional circumstances, we will award up to £750 for outstanding projects.
