for Arts
& Culture

The Baring Foundation are delighted to announce a new open round for Global Majority-led arts organisations who would like to develop their offer of creative opportunities to people living with mental health problems.

Grants of £20k-£60k available for projects taking place over a minimum of two years.

To be eligible, you should be:

  • an established arts organisation of any kind (including CICs), operating in the UK.
  • led by global majority communities in terms of both staff and governance. Please see Application guidance for definitions.
  • established for at least two years, with audited accounts or management accounts for at least that length of time.

Projects can include partnerships with other arts and mental health organisations or mental health groups or organisations.

The Foundation hopes this fund will contribute towards addressing the under-representation of artists from ethnically diverse backgrounds working in arts and mental health.

How to apply

Application guidance is available here.

If you are interested in applying but have questions you’d like to ask, the Foundation are holding two Zoom meetings for anyone interested in applying on 9 May and 8 June. You can register for either event here.

Full information here.

The deadline for applications is 12pm midday on 26th July 2022. Final decisions on grants to be awarded will be made by trustees and you will be informed by the end of October.
