Baring Foundation Welcomes Applications from Global Majority-led Arts Organisations

Arts, Culture and Heritage

25 April 2022/Categories: Grants_and_Funding

Funding to provide creative opportunities to ethnically diverse people with mental health problems in the UK.

As part of an ongoing commitment to funding racial justice work across its programmes, the Baring Foundation is now accepting applications to the next round of its Arts and Mental Health Programme.

To be eligible, applicants must be:

  • Established arts organisations of any kind (including museums). This could be a charity or a regulated social enterprise, such as a Community Interest Company. In this case, ‘arts organisation’ means an organisation whose primary purpose is around the arts and creativity broadly defined.
  • Arts organisations that are Global Majority-led. There is no 'official' definition of Global Majority Communities. In this context, it will be used to mean communities that experience racism in the UK, including Gypsy, Roma and Traveller communities.
  • Arts organisations that have been established for at least two years with audited accounts for at least that length of time.
  • Based and working in the UK.

Although the lead applicant must be a Global Majority-led arts organisation, they may wish to partner with an organisation specialising in mental health which is not arts-focused.

Grants should be used to provide participatory creative activities to people living with mental health problems, mostly from Global Majority communities.

The deadline to apply is midday on 26 July 2022.


How To Apply

The deadline to apply is 12pm on 26 July 2022.

There will be two Zoom meetings for anyone interested in applying on 9 May 2022 and 8 June 2022.

The guidelines and full details of how to apply are available on the Baring Foundation website.
