East Staffordshire Arts Grant Aid 2018 Introduction: The East Staffordshire Arts Grant Aid (formerly BADAC Grant Aid) is a small grants programme run by The Brewhouse team. The grants are aimed at supporting arts activities and events across the Borough of East Staffordshire. We want to get more people seeing, experiencing and taking part in the arts and we recognise the essential role that our voluntary, charity and community groups play in providing these opportunities for both residents and visitors.

What We Will Fund: You can apply for any amount up to a maximum grant of £500. The grant must be for activities that are Arts based; this can be any artform and can include any activity to do with the Arts i.e. creating, learning, appreciation of, taking part in etc. We are able to support an event, activity or project which delivers one or more of the following aims:  helps the organisation/group to reach new audiences (and new members)  helps to promote the work of the group/organisation  benefits the people of East Staffordshire  is completed by 30 September 2018 The grant can support one off events, a one- off purchase of essential equipment or contribute towards projects or activities. We would like to support new activity where possible. If the grant is part of a larger project we would like to know if the grant is needed to fund a specific element and we also expect you to evidence in the application form any other funding you have in place or fundraising ideas that you have in place. The grant cannot support the following:  general day to day running costs  overheads of groups  activity that has already taken place
