Funding : Celebrating Summer 2013

 Following the success of the Celebrating 2012 grants scheme, ADeC is supporting community events in East Cambridgeshire with Celebrating Summer 2013. Events from June through to the beginning of September will be considered. Grants will be for a maximum of £500 and we will expect to see a minimum of 25% match funding in place for the event. There is no lower limit for applications. Where possible we would like to see community groups working together, and would encourage festivals and events.

We highly recommend you visit, the on-line guide to running a community event in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough before you make an application. Our grants and guarantees can be used for events which can be inspired by the successful community events of 2012, and should have a focus on bringing your community together through the arts in all its forms. You can use the funding to help start a new event, or to enhance or develop an existing event.

The funding can be used for a range of purposes to support your event, including small items of capital equipment, professional artists or management fees, commissioning new work in any art-form, or training that you need in order to run your event. It cannot be used to support the running costs of an organisation (including salaries); regular, on-going activity; work in schools that directly involves delivery of the national curriculum; fund-raising events; individuals; or spending that has already been carried out.

Who can apply?

Applications are welcomed from community and voluntary groups, parish councils, professional arts organisations, and other community organisations. Applications will not be accepted from individuals, or from commercial organisations. If our grants scheme is not right for your activity we will, if possible, give you information about other funders you can contact. You then need to send in a completed application form, together with any supporting information is 31st March 2013. We recommend that you submit your application in advance.
