Bradford Producing Hub has a small amount of funding available each year to help people and organisations in Bradford to develop new spaces that will support the live arts sector. We have £5,000 per year (£15,000 in total) and expect to distribute this in pots of around £2,500 each.
Projects funded through Transforming Spaces must be:
→ specifically about supporting the development of new arts spaces in Bradford District (this can include moving or expanding premises)
→ for spaces that will be used by / available to multiple artists / organisations for development, rehearsal and/or performance
→ not about renovation, adaptation or fit out of existing arts spaces
→ not a capital contribution/fund: it is an early stage development fund – to help contribute towards costs for feasibility, business planning, design, architects, legal, etc
→ delivering on the need to help make more spaces available for Bfd creatives, as we heard so strongly the need for through our JCNA.
→ The fund is a one-off contribution and BPH won’t be able to contribute further financially to any of the projects supported, however we will support in other ways if we are able.
If you have a project that you think meets the above criteria, please send a brief summary of the project to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will arrange to discuss it further with you.
