Bournemouth Creatives New Mini Fund

Bournemouth Creatives are launching a new Mini Fund for the arts.  We plan to award small amounts of money to people who can come up with a great way to spend it.  This could be to allow you to buy materials, to use for advertising your idea, to produce printed material etc etc.  Your only limit is your imagination.

The fund is open to everyone; individuals or groups, but you must give a good reason for needing the money.  The fund is also for all forms of art – from painting, music, theatre, photography – anything creative!  Please write a proposal on one side of A4 (digitally) and include your name and contact details.  BC will choose the best of these to ‘pitch’ to the group at a meeting.  We will then have an anonymous vote to choose the winner who will be awarded the money on the night.  The first award will be for £100.

Bournemouth Creatives will publicise the winners and the results of the money being used.  This should help bring the artist publicity, but also check they have spent the money as per the proposal.

The first award night will be at our July meeting – 20th July.  Entries must be received by 30th June and those chosen to ‘pitch’ their idea on the night will be notified by 13th July.

If you are not sure whether this is for you – maybe unsure if you’d qualify – just give it a go anyway – all you have to loose is the chance to win £100 to spend on your arts project!

Email your proposals to by 13th July 2011.
