Groundwork Pro is pleased to be able to offer grants in order to enable further access to their events. The grants are open to professional Wales-based dance artists only.

These grants are open for application and are allocated on a first come first served basis running until July 2020.

The grant is suitable to cover access costs that could include but are not limited to:

  • travel costs and basic accommodation for Wales based artists not living in Cardiff
  • costs associated with removing barriers to attendance for disabled artists i.e costs of a carer/translator/interpreter/sign interpreter and/or appropriate transport
  • child care costs.

Please note we cannot cover the cost of the events and this is for Wales-based practitioners only.

As the fund is small, we kindly ask that you keep the expenses as minimal as possible in order that we can provide the opportunity to as many people as possible. If applying for travel or accommodation we can only cover the cheapest available option. We can cover mileage up to a rate of 20p per mile. We can cover up to 100% of costs for the first £100 of any application (or subsequent application in the same term) we con cover up to 50% of any additional costs.

Applications are subject to approval by the Groundwork team in order to verify need and value for money.
If you would like to apply for a grant please complete the form below or contact us if you have any queries.
