The Digital Arts and Creative Ageing programme is now open for applications and it will offer forward thinking organisations the chance to receive grant funding of up to £90,000, plus business support to scale existing creative arts services. The successful applicants will demonstrate how digital tech is being used effectively as a medium or tool to engage the over 65s in the creative arts.

What’s on offer?:
• Grant funding for each project of up to £90,000 - depending on the requirements and the number of projects funded
• Funder support for project delivery over an 18-month period.
• A support package including mentoring, marketing and communications advice and networking opportunities.

Stage one applications are open until 16 August 2016. Successful applicants will be invited to complete stage two of the process, for which the deadline is 20 September 2016.
