Leeds Inspired Grants

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. If you are thinking about submitting a Leeds Inspired grant application and would like to talk to us about your idea please email jane.earnshaw@leeds.gov.uk to arrange a grants surgery on the phone.
