Future Popular Commissions open for applications

Future Popular is LeftCoast?s small commissions programme open to artists/arts organisations based in Blackpool and Wyre.

LeftCoast is looking for dynamic, innovative and sustainable proposals from Blackpool and Wyre based artists and organisations to develop a project in their local community and explore how creativity can play a central part in the future of Blackpool and Wyre.

There are six grants available in the Spring 2015 round, four are open submissions and two are to be based with a particular partner/location. One grant is to work specifically within a children?s centre and a second grant is to work specifically within an elderly care home setting.
You will need to specify if you wish to work within these settings within your application.

The award runs for six months and you need to be able to demonstrate that you can successfully plan and deliver your project to time and to budget. You will have one month?s preparation time from selection (projects will have to be completed by the end of December 2015). LeftCoast staff support you throughout that process.

Applications are now open and must be submitted by Monday 11 May 2015.
