The Let’s Create Jubilee Fund will support voluntary and community groups to develop creative and cultural activities as part of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations in June 2022. The fund has been created by Arts Council England (ACE) with funds from the National Lottery.

The fund is open to voluntary and community organisations with charitable aims and working towards a common goal which does not have to be based solely around arts and culture. This could include youth groups, parent/carer groups and volunteer organisations.

This fund covers both County Durham and Tees Valley.

What types of projects will the fund support?

The fund will support new creative and cultural activities developed for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee in June 2022. Culture and creativity come in all shapes and sizes, so we do not want to be too prescriptive about what form projects could take; it’s more important for you to consider how to deliver creative and cultural activity that your local communities will want to take part in and find a partner who can help you deliver it.

To be eligible projects should engage with at least one of the artforms which ACE supports through its funding. These are:

  • Music
  • Theatre
  • Dance Visual Arts
  • Literature
  • Combined arts – including festivals and carnivals
  • Museum and library activities

When to apply?

Applications will open on 4th January 2022 and must be submitted by Sunday 27th February 2022. All applicants will receive the outcome of their application by 1st April 2022.

Further details are in the Grant Guidelines document. Groups should read these carefully before applying.
