Arts Council England (ACE) is investing £24million over the next four years in its Creative People and Places scheme, to support work in those areas of the country falling into the bottom third in terms of engagement with creative and cultural practice. ACE is looking for community groups, cultural organisations or other local organisations (e.g. clubs or local businesses) that may not have worked with the arts before. One of the eligible areas in the south west able to apply for this funding from January 2019 is Swindon.
More information about the programme, eligibility and information events is available on Arts Council England website https://www.artscouncil.org.uk/creative-people-and-places/creative-people-and-places-programme-2019
