Artist Run Workshops in Schools

Getting Funding

Frequently Asked Questions

How can we get help with funding our project or event?

We do know it can be difficult to get all the funding needed, so a few ideas which have worked for some schools:
  • Some schools do ask the children/parents to make a small contribution each towards the cost of the workshop.
  • Some schools have managed to get a contribution from their PTA.
  • Some schools have managed to get sponsorship from local businesses.
  • You might be able to get some funding support from your Local Education Authority, under the *Standards Fund – for further information contact your LEA or follow the link to CfBT Education Trust Young Gifted & Talented and the following pdf document:
  • CfTB Funding for Schools pdf
  • You could apply for a *grant (via your regional office) to Arts Council England:
  • You could try asking some local charities; e.g. the Rotary Club who are sometimes able to fund local ‘good causes’.
