Grand Plan are a new charity offering three £1,000 grants a month for people of colour based in the UK who want to make a new creative project. It can be anything: poetry, paintings, fashion, zines, music, food, flowers, photographs whatever you want.
What does the fund entail:
Grand Plan want to help you to get your idea for a creative project off the ground.
Theyre supporting artists and creatives who identify as people of colour and are based in the UK. You need to be at least eighteen years old. Theres no maximum age.
Your project doesnt need to cost exactly £1,000 but were not looking to part-fund projects which cost much more than £1,000 to realise.
Applications are assessed by an independent panel of judges, and they will award three grants a month. They hope to increase this number over time.
The only two things they ask if youre successful are:
They’d love to see your realised project and share it on our platforms. But no deadlines or fixed expectations from us.
Credit Grand Plan if and when you share your project publicly. This will mean more people can find us.
