Arts & Business NI have opened applications for their ground-breaking cultural sustainability programme Blueprint.
Blueprint is a pioneering 5-year financial growth programme which will enable small to medium-sized cultural organisations in NI to take a more long-term approach to their income generation. Blueprint is informed by five years of research and development led by the team at Arts & Business NI and is supported by a cohort of public and private funders. These funders will work together across the period of the programme to share strategies on taking a longer-term approach to building long-term financial strength within the arts/cultural sector.
The public and private funders supporting Blueprint include two UK foundations: Paul Hamlyn Foundation and Esmée Fairbairn Foundation, alongside The National Lottery Community Fund NI, Department for Communities NI, Arts Council of Northern Ireland and Belfast City Council.
Deadline for applications is: 12 noon on Wednesday 1st December 2021.
