Creative Awards Scheme

SANE Creative Awards Scheme

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

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

Proposals can be submitted 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. Applications are assessed by a panel, which includes practising artists.

SANE is working in partnership on this scheme with the Open College of the Arts, the distance learning arm of the University of the Creative Arts. They are providing advice, guidance and members of the assessment panel.

Awards for 2019 have now been issued. The next round of applications will open in Spring 2020.

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