Let’s Create Jubilee Fund
15 December 2021 by Ed
With Her Majesty the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee taking place in June 2022, Arts Council (ACE) have launched the Let’s Create Jubilee Fund, distributed by UK Community Foundations (UKCF), to help communities celebrate this historic milestone through culture and creativity.
Investing £5million into a new programme distributed by UK Community Foundations.
Funding thanks to the National Lottery to support voluntary and community organisations to deliver creative activity as part of Her Majesty the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations.
Her Majesty the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations are a special moment in our collective history; one that gives us a chance to look back at what has been achieved over the last 70 years and also look forward to what is possible in the future.
The focus of this fund is to empower community organisations to work collaboratively with artists and cultural organisations in a way they might not have before, to produce creative events that are driven by them and highlight their ideas and creativity.
Although our funding usually falls under several artform disciplines, ACE don’t want to be too prescriptive over what kinds of creative responses we expect to see for the Let’s Create Jubilee Fund. Instead, They want to encourage community organisations to think about what creative activity would mean the most to their local communities and why.
