Application writing workshop:
Arts Council England : Developing Your Creative Practice (DYCP)
Monday 10 May 2021, 6-7:30pm

We’re pleased to offer our next online workshop to support artists who are planning an application to Round 10 of Arts Council England’s Developing Your Creative Practice funding programme. Taking place on Monday 10 May (6-7:30pm) and led by Mark Devereux, this workshop will address the core 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 workshop (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.

This workshop is independent from Arts Council England, sharing the knowledge and experience Mark has built from previous successful grant applications.


Participants will be sent a Zoom link and password 24-hours prior to the workshop.

The workshop will include an live transcription link, with full transcriptions shared with the participants the following day. The session will also be recorded and shared via a Vimeo video link. The video will be available to re-watch for 1-month.

“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,]

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]
