New £455,000 Welsh Government Grant Scheme to support Black, Asian and minority Ethnic community-led and grassroots cultural activities.
Diverse Cymru is delighted to announce that they are managing the Welsh Government’s Culture Grant Scheme for Grassroot Organisations and that the scheme will be open for applications in mid-August 2023.
The Welsh Government’s Culture Grant Scheme for Grassroot Organisations is one of a range of activities taking place that will support Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic people, including people from Gypsy, Roma and Traveller communities, having equitable access to and involvement in cultural activities across Wales.
The Grant Scheme is a direct response to two specific actions in the Culture, Heritage and Sport section of the Anti-racist Wales Action Plan. It addresses the need to review funding application to improve outcomes for Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic-led organisations or people from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic background and ring-fences resources to support grassroots cultural and creative activities among Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic groups.
Groups and organisations will be able to apply for funding up to £30,000 depending on the size and constitutional status of the group and will support a range of projects and groups that reflect the diversity of Wales’s communities including, but not exclusive to visual art, community art, dance, carnival, festivals, performance, literature, and music.
Online engagement events will be held throughout August and September where interested groups will be able to meet with the grant administrators and find out more.
