What the Originators Fund is, what you need to apply, how to apply, what happens next.

The Originators Fund 2022 to 2023 is now closed to applications.

We'll let all applicants know the outcome of their application by the end of April 2022.

The Originators Fund gives grants of £500 to £5,000 to Bristol-based individuals or organisations to run arts, events and cultural activities that take place within one year. 

This can be: 

  • 100% of the funding you need for your project
  • combined with other funding you have, or are applying for, from other sources, to increase the scale of your project

The Originators fund is for projects that take place between May 2022 and April 2023.

The Originators Fund 2023 to 2024 will open for applications towards the end of 2022.
