Libraries Connected, in partnership with The Family Arts Campaign, are inviting library authorities in England to apply for a small grant to support them in reviewing and improving their practice with the intention of applying for the Family Arts or Age Friendly Standards for their authority.
We are inviting Expressions of Interest from 10 library authorities to help them on this path. Each participating authority will be awarded £500.
If you are interested, please complete the attached expression of interest and return it to email@example.com by 5 pm on 9 June 2021.
Successful applicants will be invited to an introductory online meeting in June led by Libraries Connected and the Family Arts Campaign as part of the planning process.
The Family Arts Campaign (FAC) is a national cross-sector initiative, which aims to increase levels of engagement in arts, culture and creativity for families across the UK. As one of Arts Council England’s Sector Support Organisations, the FAC is dedicated to providing guidance, training and support to cultural organisations and artists to reach, engage and connect with family audiences. You can find more information about the FAC's aims in the Background Information document attached to this article.
