Bursaries for A Culture of Care

In partnership with Arts Development at Derby City Council we are offering 10 free spaces to attend A Culture of Care to freelance creative practitioners and carers who live, or whose practice, is based in Derby.

Applications will be assessed by Arts Development at Derby City Council and the Culture, Health & Wellbeing Alliance.

We are particularly keen to ensure the bursaries are representative in relation to the protected characteristics recognised in the Equality Act 2010 as well as class and socioeconomic status.
