The Elephant Trust: Developing Fine Arts in the United Kingdom

Deadline: 21 January 2019

The Elephant Trust is accepting applications for its Grant program to support new work.

The Elephant Trust was created in 1975 by Roland Penrose and Lee Miller with a view to develop and improve the knowledge, understanding and appreciation of the fine arts in the United Kingdom.

The Trust was set up in 1975 to make it possible for artists and those presenting their work to undertake and complete projects when frustrated by lack of funds. It is committed to helping artists and art institutions/galleries that depart from the routine and signal new, distinct and imaginative sets of possibilities.

Funding Information

Given The Elephant Trust’s modest resources, grants have usually been limited to £2,000, but with the recent addition of the Shelagh Wakely Bequest some larger grants of up to £5,000 may be awarded.

Priority Areas

Priority is given to artists in the fine arts and small organisations and galleries who should submit well argued, imaginative proposals for making or producing new work or exhibitions.

The following categories are not supported:

  • Arts Festivals
  • Group Exhibitions
  • Charities organising community projects
  • Students
  • Educational or other studies
  • Residencies or research
  • Symposia or conferences
  • Theatres
  • Catalogues
  • Projects taking place outside the UK

How to Apply

Applications in typed form should be sent at the address given on the website.

Eligible Country: United Kingdom
