Don’t delay: deadline looms on latest round of the Arts Council England’s “Developing Your Creative Practice” funding program

Arts Council England - Developing Your Creative Practice

Arts Council England is running a funding program called Developing Your Creative Practice, to support individuals who are cultural and creative practitioners and want to take time to focus on their creative development – which includes comic creators.

Comic creatives create art and literature, and qualify for funding.

The scheme is run four times a year and individuals can get up to £12,000 to help with their creative practice. The next deadline is the 14th December midday 2023, but be aware the registration process can take up to ten days before you can apply for funding, so if you would like to pitch for funding, then you should start your application as soon as possible.

To help make sure you’re paying yourself fairly, especially during the cost of living crisis, Arts Council England recently increased how much you can apply for. They are also aware Developing your Creative Practice is a very competitive fund, so they are making some other changes too, so you can decide when is the right time for you to apply, and to give everyone a fair chance of receiving funding.

Do note that if you have applied for this program before and were unsuccesful, there are restrictions on applying again
