Grants for communities to run Platinum Jubilee arts events and celebrations

11 January, 2022

The Arts Council England (ACE) Let’s Create Jubilee Programme will focus on supporting voluntary and community organisations to develop new creative and cultural activities as part of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations in June 2022.

The programme is open to voluntary and community organisations whose charitable aims do not have to be based solely around arts and culture. For instance, this could include youth groups, parent/carer groups and volunteer organisations.

Public-facing activity should take place in June near to the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Weekend which begins on Thursday 2nd June 2022. This programme has been created by ACE in partnership with UK Community Foundations (UKCF) with funds from the National Lottery.

To be eligible, projects should engage with at least one of the artforms which ACE supports through its funding. These are:

• Music
• Theatre
• Dance
• Visual arts
• Literature
• Combined arts – including festivals and carnivals
• Museum and library activities.

Applicants are strongly encouraged to partner with an artist, creative or cultural organisation that has been in receipt of ACE funding within the last 4-years. Please read the Guide to Applicants for further information.

This programme closes for applications on Monday 28th February. All applicants will receive a funding decision by Friday 1st April 2022. Applicants can apply for grants from £750 to £10,000. The project can begin from 1st April so that preparation can take place such as rehearsals, workshops etc.
