Great to see the work of Sarah Corbett and the Craftivists Collective thriving. Here’s her latest posting on the #wellMAKING Crafitivist Garden. I particularly like her update on the 5-Ways to Wellbeing!

Craft. Connect. Reflect. Challenge. Grow. 

Calling all Guerrilla Artists
Following the huge success of our first Guerrilla Arts Workshop in July, Alternative Futures Group are now inviting artist submissions for their 2014/15 Guerrilla Arts Project. - See more by clicking on the poster below.

The Trusthouse Charitable Foundation
The Trusthouse Charitable Foundation has announced that capital and revenue funding is available to support the work of local and national charities and not-for-profit organisations that address rural and urban deprivation. Within these two main headings, the Trust is interested in helping established projects which work in the fields of:
•  Community Support
•  Arts, Education & Heritage
•  Disability & Health Care
The type of projects the Trust are interested in funding include projects providing transport for the elderly, disabled or disadvantaged; contact networks for the young disabled; projects which encourage a sense of community such as community centres and village halls; employment training schemes especially those promoting local, traditional crafts; projects addressing issues such as drug/alcohol misuse or homelessness.

The Grants Committee meets quarterly to consider applications at the beginning of February, May, September and November. The deadlines for submitting applications are generally 2 months before the date of a meeting. Read more at: 

Comic Relief
Comic Relief's grant making programme has moved away from funding in specialist areas, to supporting a wider range of work that meets with one of its four themes:
  • Safer Lives 
  • Better Futures 
  • Healthier Finances 
  • Fairer Society 

Comic Relief will make grants for up to 3 years, for a minimum of £10,000.   There is no maximum grant size, however an average grant size is for £130,000 over three years.  Comic Relief will consider applications for core costs from organisations where the entire work of the organisation fits strongly with the theme.  All applications must also fit with one of Comic Relief's priorities.

A sparse blog this week - swamped and slightly disconnected. Big fat blackberries picked from hedgerows and scratched purple hands as a distraction from all that lies ahead. The green, green fields and trees somehow overbearing.
