Arts Council England – Developing your Creative Practice (DYP)
Arts Council England’s (ACE) Developing your Creative Practice (DYP) awards grants of between £2,000 to £10,000 to support the development of independent creative practitioners. This programme allows individuals, of any of ACE’s supported disciplines, the opportunity to take a dedicated period of time to focus on their own creative development and take them to the next stage in their practice. This could be for a period of research, time to create new work, travel (including international working), training, developing future ideas, networking or mentoring. DYP encourages development by allowing artists and cultural practitioners to innovate and take creative risks, work in new ways and to eventually reach new audiences. Activities can be up to one year in length. There are four rounds per year for this programme; you cannot apply to more than two rounds within a 12-month period. Rounds 8 and 9 have deadline dates of 12 noon, 13 February 2020 and 12 noon, 07 May 2020 respectively. To apply for DYP you must be at least 18 years old with at least 3 years creative practice experience outside a formal education, be based within (live in) England and have a UK bank account in the exact name you’re applying in.
