REVEAL: Arts & Community Grants

As part of the Reveal programme CreateKX is offering grants for projects led by established and experienced arts and/or community organisations that will provide exciting opportunities for local people living around Kings’ Cross/St Pancras as participants and audiences, and add value to the artistic programme.

Reveal is a creative journey through King’s Cross, taking place 22 April- 2 May 2010. The programme’s themes of discovery, revelation and exploration will reveal the creative history and celebrate the future of King’s Cross. Reveal builds on the success of the 2007 Arrivals programme.

Reveal will offer artists, participants and audiences access to the hidden treasures of King’s Cross, discovering the past through local stories, site specific performance and installations in some of the iconic buildings in the area whilst glimpsing the future through a range of innovative partnerships, unique venues and multi art-form and digital media events.
Reveal will create an arts trail with King’s Cross and St Pancras International in the centre, a creative treasure map where X marks the spot. We’ll weave this web of activity through three strands of work:

  • Create KX projects & commissions

  • Partnership Projects

  • Arts and Community Projects

We can offer funding for original and adventurous arts & community projects that will culminate in a performance, showcase or other public event as part of the Reveal programme. Please note that we will be looking to fund projects in the region of £2-3k. If your project will cost more then you must identify and access the match funds from another source.

Successful projects will be able to demonstrate all of the following:
Involvement of a professional artist or arts organisation

  • A theme or idea linked to the Reveal concept

  • A small amount of match funding

  • A good track record of arts project delivery

  • Real benefit to local people

Proposals must be submitted by Monday 4th January 2010. For more information about eligibility and the application process, please visit: http://www.createkx.org.uk/NewsDetail.aspa?PageId=1465&NodeId=215
