Just days left for Bromsgrove creatives to apply for share of £100K community cash

CREATIVES in Bromsgrove are being urged to apply for their share of £100,000 worth funding which has become available.

The Recovery through Creative project is funded by a £50,000 Greater Birmingham and Solihull Local Enterprise Partnership (GBSLEP) grant secured by NWedR and match funded by Bromsgrove District Council.

Individuals, groups, businesses and collaborations in the creative industries sectors are invited to apply for grant funding to deliver activities and projects that will attract residents and visitors to Bromsgrove town centre and local centres through the provision of new experiences.

These could be, but are not limited to, outdoor public art events, art exhibitions, local festivals, arts and crafts markets, food markets, community events, street art, and street performances.

Bromsgrove District Council leader, Coun Karen May, said: “This is a great opportunity for local creatives to get their creative juices flowing and to benefit the community with their skills and talents. We are looking for ideas that will encourage people to try new things and get involved in their community.”

Anita Bhalla, Interim Chair of GBSLEP, said: “Spring is a great time to get creative and this grant has been designed to bring a buzz into Bromsgrove and get people collaborating in new ways.

“Individuals, groups, and businesses are asked to submit an expression of interest to deliver innovative projects in their locality.

“This project demonstrates our ongoing commitment to the creative industries which GBSLEP sees as a catalyst for recovery and delivering inclusive economic growth across our region.”

The closing date for expressions of interest is Sunday, March 13, and the activities must be delivered by June 30, 2022.
