Let’s Create is back!

Let’s Create is back and looking for applicants this time around who would like to build on the success of our last Let’s Create. Between  2015 to 2016 Let’s Create commissioned 22 projects and engaged over 5,300 people with new arts activity in East Durham, increasing arts participation in our area. If you applied in the initial stages, or if you’re a brand new project, we’d like to hear what exciting new arts activity you want to see happen in our area.


Here are the two art commissioning opportunities open for applications;

BIG IDEAS – Up to £4,500 for bigger projects, particularly those that engage multiple partners in the East Durham area. These could build on previous Let’s Create applications or showcase brand new ideas and partnerships.
