Creative Awards Scheme

Creative Awards Scheme

Our Creative Awards Scheme aims to improve the quality of life for people with mental health problems, their families and carers, by helping them fulfil their creative potential.

The scheme makes grants to individuals so they can engage in creative and educational activities. It is open to anyone who wishes to submit proposals for works of visual art. For the purposes of the scheme, visual art encompasses all forms of painting, drawing, printmaking, photography, mixed media and digital art.

Awards will range from £75 to £300. They will be given to cover or contribute to the cost of materials, specific projects, training courses or towards providing replacement care in the case of carers who apply. 

Successful applications will be selected by a panel, which will include practising artists and writers.

We are working in partnership on the scheme with the Open College of the Arts, the distance learning arm of the University of the Creative Arts. They will be providing advice, guidance and members of the awards judging panel.

This round of applications is now closed.

The next round will open in Spring 2020.

Please check the SANE website and social media channels for further details nearer the time.
