Arts Foundation offers cash support


Arts practitioners and organisations in the Horncastle area are being offered another opportunity to bid for support in the coming year.

Proposals for innovative public projects, or for their own personal professional development, can be put forward.

The St Hugh’s Foundation, the arts development charity, has now opened the next round of its Arts Awards programme.

Applications have to be in by 21 March. Awards winners will be announced next July.

The award is intended for developmental arts projects of up to three years.

As well as extended financial support - possibly around £12,000 to £15,000 - the Foundation offers continuing professional advice.

The 2013 award went to Rhubarb Theatre Company.

Details are available on the foundation’s website,
