Bursary programme supports eight organisations in the North : Creative Case for Diversity

Eight organisations in the North have been awarded Creative Case NORTH bursaries to support them in exploring how they contribute to the Creative Case for Diversity. The Creative Case for Diversity is the Arts Council’s approach to diversity and equality, setting out how both can enrich the arts for artists, audiences and our wider society.  Creative Case NORTH is a sector-led programme of activity exploring the Creative Case, developed by a consortium of arts and cultural organisations and artists in the North, supported by the Arts Council.

The bursaries are providing six of our National portfolio organisations and two of our Major partner museums with the time, space and resources to develop their contribution to the Creative Case within their programming, collections or curatorial practice.
