Digital Arts & Creative Ageing is a collaborative grant funding programme developed by Nominet Trust and The Baring Foundation. This programme is all about improving engagement with the creative arts by older people across the UK, with the associated benefits to general health and wellbeing which such participation brings.
This is an open grant funding programme. We are seeking strong and innovative applications from entrepreneurial-minded organisations that have already demonstrated the distinctive value that digital technology and the internet can bring to connecting older people with the creative arts – and the beneficial social outcomes offered by this broadening of digital engagement.
Digital Arts & Creative Ageing will provide funding and support to help you scale and sustain products or services that have already been trialled and have evidence of uptake, with the aim of developing their social, user and financial value.
Applications are open to UK-based organisations, including for-profits, charities and community interest companies that work with UK beneficiaries. The open call for stage one applications closes on 16 August 2016, with selected organisations invited to stage two of the application process. The successful organisations will be announced in November 2016.
If your application is successful, you can expect to receive:
- Grant funding for each project of up to £90,000 – depending on the requirements and the number of projects chosen for funding.
- Funder support for project delivery over an 18-month period.
- A support package including mentoring, marketing & communications advice and networking opportunities.
