Arts Council England | Developing Your Creative Practice (DYCP)
Application writing workshops & one-to-one surgeries

Session 1: Thursday 14 January, 6-7:30pm
Session 2: Tuesday 19 January, 12-1:30pm
1-hour one-to-one surgeries: 25 January – 12 February

We’re pleased to offer our next online workshop to support artists who are planning an application to Round 9 of Arts Council England’s Developing Your Creative Practice funding programme. Mark Devereux will be leading two separate workshop sessions in January, plus one-to-one surgeries to support specific questions surrounding an application to DYCP.

As one of the core funders for individual artists, Arts Council England grants can unlock and create important developmental opportunities to help you take your practice and ideas to the next level. The online workshops (via Zoom) will take an in-depth look at the application process for the DYCP programme, dissecting the questions, what they mean and the detail the assessors are looking for. The 1-hour one-to-one surgeries (via Zoom) will be available for artists to gain further tailored support in forming and developing your application.

Participants will be sent a Zoom link and Password 24-hours prior to your booked session.

Each workshop will be recorded and shared with the participants the following day. The video will be available to re-watch via Vimeo until 19 February. The one-to-one surgeries will not be recorded.

This programme of workshops and surgeries is independent from Arts Council England, sharing the knowledge and experience Mark Devereux Projects have built from previous successful grant applications.

Testimonials


“I highly recommend Mark Devereux Projects’ Developing Your Creative Practice Application Writing Workshop. It really helped me to focus on the information Arts Council needed from me to make my application successful; which parts of my proposal should be given more weight in each section of the application form, to think about what the key milestones are of my proposed project, the type of language to use, what impact the funding would have on my career and how all of this fits in with the Arts Council’s Let’s Create Strategy. I am very grateful to Mark Devereux Projects for their help in making my application successful.” [Gareth Kemp, previous workshop participant, garethkemp.com]

“I just wanted to let you know that, thanks to you, my DYCP funding application was successful! I genuinely couldn’t have done it without your support…” [Previous workshop participant]
