Royal Opera House Bridge will be opening applications to the next round of their Learning Offer Development Fund from 19 November for cultural organisations based in Essex, Thurrock or Southend-on-Sea. Organisations can apply for between £2,500 and £7,000 to improve their work with children and young people.
Whether you want to diversify your current offer, engage with more young people, collaborate with organisations or work with a mentor to develop a new approach, the fund can help you. Find out more.
Organisations planning to make an application are strongly recommended to join the Cultural Sector Training Sessions (below).
- Session 1 on 22 September explores what quality looks like through the use of a self-assessment framework.
- Session 2 on 6 October is about the Artsmark Partnership Programme, an Arts Council endorsed network of cultural organisations who are devoted to bringing great arts and cultural learning opportunities to children and young people.
- Session 3 on 20 October is an introduction to evaluation and measuring your impact.
- Session 4 on 3 November looks at equality, diversity and inclusion. We’ll hear from providers who are delivering good practice, and discuss challenges and needs.
