Our Build programme aims to give local organisations and artists opportunities to lay new foundations for creative projects within the community.

With this programme HOME Slough is looking for people to try out new ideas, develop existing ones, or to give more people the chance to have exciting arts experiences locally.

Bursaries are available up to £2,500.

To apply:

  • You should be a Slough-based artist, a cultural group or even a community organisation with creative plans. 
  • You should have a bold and exciting idea to engage people with.
  • You should have the ambition to realise it before November – with two awards being offered for 2018.

We would particularly encourage applicants to respond to the theme of ‘Home’: perhaps exploring what home means to you, what makes home special, or maybe it is finding a new home within your community for a new creative activity or art form. We are open to your ideas. We want your responses to be as playful and participatory as possible.

In order to decide which ideas are commissioned, a panel of three Slough residents (chosen from our Creative Connectors) and two representatives from HOME Slough consortium will meet to review all applications.



New round of bursaries soon.
