About the event

As part of the 'Culture in Quarantine' initiative, we've joined forces with Unlimited to design a webinar to give more insight into what makes a compelling application.

What makes a compelling application?

There are lots of calls for application processes to innovate to become more accessible to more people – however the funds available aren’t necessarily increasing. Like it or not, for many opportunities competition is here to stay.

This means that creating a compelling application is still part of the picture. This event is designed to give you more insight into what the partners involved in Culture in Quarantine think make great applications.

Hosted by Unlimited and The Space, in association with Arts Council England, the session will have a number of focused conversations, a chance to ask questions, and end with a group opportunity to add to a ‘top tips’ list.

We’ll cover:

  • What do funders want?
  • Giving yourself the best chance (accessible formats, using access funds, timing and preparing in advance)
  • Getting to grips with the guidance material
  • Most frequently seen errors
