Frequently Asked Questions

No, this fund is valid for covering the cost of tickets and transport, or workshops and materials, for example. We cannot support requests to cover subsistence cost, or any capital expenditure.

No, this fund is to cover the cost of high quality arts experiences that would not be able to take place without the use of this grant. Tickets may be purchased once you have been informed that the grant has been awarded, if you school is able to cover the cost prior to the actual funds entering the school account this is fine. We are unable to support activity that is already planned or already taking place. We cannot retrospectively fund Go and See experiences.

As a rule, this is a no. However under very exceptional circumstances, and if you are able to clearly detail why a specific high quality arts experience would need to happen outside of Wales, the panel may be able to consider this.

The aim of this fund is for pupils to experience high quality arts, within high quality arts venues outside of the school and classroom environment.

Match funding is not to be sent directly to us, we expect this 10% match to come through school funds, in-kind costs or fundraising as an example.

This doesn’t stop you from applying, but should your application be approved then as a condition of grant you will be asked to provide an exact date.
