Programme objectives

The Foundation aims to encourage innovation in arts practice, policy and management in its area of benefit. For this Arts Awards programme, we have three objectives.

  • To invest in developmental creative projects that will evolve and grow over time.
  • To help to address regional needs for innovation and change that can be clearly identified in arts practice, policy or management.
  • To back projects which are well-conceived, carefully planned and well-managed.


Proposals should meet the following three criteria:


Developmental creative projects
Proposals should represent significant new development opportunities that are not already available publicly, and offer creative growth with widened experience for the applicants and for others. Our involvement may be over a period of two or three years, so we are looking for proposals that will evolve creatively with the potential to grow into wider directions in the future.


Evidence of regional need for innovation and change
Applicants should be able to show evidence of the need for innovation and change, and of the potential value of such a project, both for themselves, and for the wider public context in which it will be developed. It will therefore need to be accessible and easily understood. It should be likely to generate impacts that can be evaluated, with beneficial outcomes for the participants and the communities they touch. And it should have a clear legacy, with lasting value over time.


Practical and achievable
Proposals should be carefully thought-through and thoroughly well planned before applying, including setting out realistic budgets, with clear understanding of where all funding for the duration of the project (not just ours) would be secured. Basic research and essential discussions with other players should be carried out before submitting an application. Your ability to manage and sustain the project throughout its lifetime will be a crucial factor. In the case of proposals by organisations and public bodies, we will want to know that continuity provisions are in place in the event of personnel or policy changes during its lifetime.
