The Great Place Scheme (England)
Deadline (Expressions of Interest): 6 Oct
The Great Place Scheme will fund projects in areas where there is a commitment to embed arts, culture and heritage in local plans and decision-making.  By strengthening the networks between culture, civic and community organisations, and by involving citizens and local businesses, projects will enhance the role that culture plays in the future of each place participating in the Scheme. In time this will lead to the wide range of social and economic benefits that arts, culture and heritage can achieve. The Great Place Scheme is a pilot and will initially be delivered only in England. It aims to support 12 successful applicants from 12 places across England to participate in the Scheme, including four rural areas. The scheme is a partnership between Arts Council England, Heritage Lottery Fund and Historic England. Read more at:
