Leeds Inspired manages two grant schemes to support arts events and arts projects taking place in Leeds. Since April 2012 we have funded over 600 arts projects that have taken place across the city and worked with a range of audiences, artists and communities in Leeds.
Applications are welcome for standalone arts projects and also arts activities that contribute to larger events or initiatives.
