Virtual support sessions for artists – update


Virtual support sessions offered for artists in Salford applying for ACE Emergency Funding Streams

Following our sessions ahead of the first ACE deadline (16th April) we are offering further bookable slots with the team before the final ACE deadline (30th April). 

Whilst we can’t offer ‘official’ advice, we have a range of fundraising experience, and can help proof, edit, and talk through ideas – or just lend an ear! Get in touch to book a slot or chat with us.

As outlined in Suprema Lex, the new strategy for Culture, Salford is city of makers. As a University, we work with so many artists and creatives and will continue to serve the arts community in this really challenging time.

It’s hard to imagine what life will be like on the other side, but right now, we can all continue to connect, lend an ear and support each other the best we can to make sure Salford remains a thriving city of culture- with music, art and performance to look forward to in the future.

The University of Salford Art Collection Team, School of Arts and Media and Alumni Engagement and Development teams are working together to develop a programme of activity to support the creative community in Salford who have been affected by COVID-19.

In response to the Arts Council England’s Emergency Funding Streams announcement, we are offering support sessions in April. Whilst we are not officially affiliated with the ACE funding team, we are committed to supporting the Salford community and its artists- advising where we can. We have a range of fundraising experience, and can help proof, edit or talk through ideas.

The Emergency Funding Streams open on 9th April and are available for individuals and organisations facing financial hardship.

If you are a creative practitioner and would like to book a timeslot with a member of the team, please get in touch:

Please make sure you are registered on Grantium, the Arts Council England portal, and have read the available guidance on the ACE website.
