Round ten of Arts Council England’s (ACE) Developing Your Creative Practice (DYCP) fund is currently open for applications, and the deadline is midday on 27 May 2021.
The MU’s feedback service for completed applications, prior to them being submitted to ACE, is available to members. This involves an independent funding advisor assessing applications and identifying omissions or areas that could be strengthened, in order that applicants can ensure their answers are responding appropriately to the questions.
Read further guidance on applying to the DYCP fund, and more information on using our feedback service.
A change in application criteria
Please note that ACE’s criteria for applying has recently been amended. From Friday 30 April 2021, applicants who have made two unsuccessful applications or one successful one since 17 April 2019 will not be eligible for either of the next two rounds (ten and eleven).
However, it is hoped that applicants in this position will be able to apply again from round twelve.
Feedback on Project Grants
The MU’s feedback service for ACE Project Grants is also available to members, and there is currently no deadline on this fund.
