New charity Grand Plan – grants for people of colour based in the UK who want to make a new creative project.

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.

  • They’re 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. There’s no maximum age.

  • Your project doesn’t need to cost exactly £1,000 but we’re 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 you’re 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.
