Arts Programme - Attracting new male participants into creative mental health programmes

Grants of £20k to £50k available for developing new participatory arts opportunities for men with mental health problems.

We are pleased to announce today a new open round of funding for arts organisations who would like to develop new participatory arts opportunities for men with mental health problems.

Grants of £20k to £50k are available for either of the following approaches, or a combination of the two:

  • Work which finds ways to achieve equal representation (or a significant increase) of men in mixed gender creative activities;
  • Men-only creative activities.

We are looking for projects which provide new and attractive creative opportunities for men who are not already taking part, and target those men who are least likely otherwise to take part.

Projects should take place over at least one year, and preferably two or more years.

To be eligible, you must:

  • be an established arts organisation of any kind (including museums) operating in the UK;
  • have delivered creative opportunities to people with mental health problems for at least two years;
  • have had an annual income of over £75,000 for the last two years.
