Funding is available to support individual works, activities, performances or prizes in the fields of drama, painting, sculpture, ballet, music, poetry and architecture in the UK.
There are no stated minimum or maximum amounts.
Thee Fenton Arts Trust offers funding to individuals and organisations who are making a worthwhile contribution to the artistic and cultural life of this country. In particular it wishes to support artists at the beginning of their careers.
The Trust has the following objectives:
- To provide grants which will support or reward work or performance by individuals early in their careers.
- To provide grants for institutions or organisations that share these aims.
The following are not eligible for funding:
- Community arts.
- Youth or student work.
- Projects by amateur organisations.
- Projects by amateur/untrained artists (of all genres).
- An individual’s initial professional training.
Groups, companies, institutions and individuals in the UK are eligible to apply.
Grants are available to support individual works, activities, performances or prizes in the fields of drama, painting, sculpture, ballet, music, poetry and architecture.
The Trust has also funded educational institutions so that they may award scholarships and bursaries to final year and postgraduate students. This funding may continue where the Trust considers that its support will aid those who have already made a professional entry into the arts rather than those who are still seeking that entry.
Applications may be submitted at any time. However, in most financial years (April-March) almost all funds in the current budget are committed by July.
Frequency: Applications are considered three times per year.
