Creative, Confident Communities

Creativity transforming lives

Clean Break


PLEASE NOTE: We are making some key changes to our strategy in one of our aims, A Fairer Future. Because of this we will temporarily close to new applications in funding priorities for A Fairer Future until Autumn 2022, when we will share our revised strategy.


We believe creative activity can help people facing difficult social or personal issues and can be a powerful way to call attention to inequality and injustice.

We are interested in those who use the power of creativity to address vital issues and help individuals and communities to reach their potential.
