Please note: Our Small and Large Grant programmes are now closed while we undertake a review of our Lottery funding. We'll start rolling out our new programmes of funding in the Autumn.  You can find out more about our review here.

If you have a current live grant, you can still use the Help section of each grant page to download useful documents (such as completion reports).

This funding helps creative professionals enhance and invest in their creative practice or skill.

It could mean attending an industry recognised training course, a masterclass, or taking up coaching, mentoring or creative apprenticeship opportunities.

We also want you to be able to make a sustainable living from your practice and build a career in Wales. To make this happen, we want to support projects that strengthen the business side of your practice. That could mean helping you diversify into new markets or finding other ways to generate income.
