Funding to Engage Older People with the Arts (England)
The Celebrating age programme is being jointly funded by Arts Council England and the Baring Foundation.

A total of £3million pounds has been made available to support arts and cultural spaces to be open, positive and welcoming places for older people and to take arts and culture into places where older people will find it easier to engage. Grants of between £50,000 and £100,000 are available to organisations working as a consortium. One organisation must act as the lead organisation and must be Arts Council funded or presenting work to the public funded through a National Portfolio Organisation, Major Partner Museum, Creative People and Places, or Museums Resilience Fund. At least 10 per cent match funding is required and this can be either cash or in kind support.

The closing date for applications is 12 noon on the 13 October 2016.
