Grants available for Sheffield arts, cultural and heritage organisations.

Grants are now available for Sheffield-based arts, cultural and heritage organisations to deliver creative programmes of outreach, engagement and participation in the city between March 2024 and March 2025.

Organisations are invited to submit proposals for arts-led community engagement activity which is designed to benefit communities in areas of Sheffield with low levels of arts engagement and for people from lower socio economic backgrounds.

Site Gallery is working with Sheffield City Council to manage the Sheffield Creative Communities Fund. The grant programme is part of Sheffield City Council’s Sheffield Culture Showcase, funded by the Shared Prosperity Fund (SPF) as part of the UK government’s Levelling Up agenda and is supported by the South Yorkshire Mayoral Combined Authority (SYMCA).
