HOME STRETCH AWARDS

ABOUT

HOME Stretch Awards are designed to support artists and organisers of community events to extend their activity and widen their audiences. 

 

Funding awards of up to £500 for confirmed events taking place in Slough, are available to:

     - Support community event organisers to strengthen the artistic content of events through help with commissioning artists

     - Enable promoters of arts events to more effectively market their events to new audiences in the borough

 

In both cases, in addition to the financial support of up to £500 from the HOME Stretch fund, the HOME Slough team will provide advice and support with marketing for new audiences and commissioning artists.

 

We want to support:

1) Artists costs for events which

     - Are likely to attract large numbers of local audiences (minimum 100+)

     - Need support with presenting a quality arts experience at the events

 

2) Marketing costs for arts events which

     - Are likely to be of interest to local audiences

     - Are ambitious and have the potential to give people a high quality arts experience

     - Need support with finding the best ways of marketing the event to new audiences

 

The decision-making panel meets on a regular basis to consider HOME Stretch applications. Panel members are Creative Connectors – local residents who make decisions about how the HOME Slough funding is spent and what takes place during the programme.

 

Upcoming Deadlines –  Thursday 25 May & Thursday 22 June
