Applicants must be resident in Derbyshire, excluding Derby City, or the majority of work must take place within the County boundary.  If you only have an administrative base in the county you will not be eligible.  Due to the high number of applicants, preference will be given to those who both live and work in Derbyshire, are new or emerging businesses and who have not received a Derbyshire Arts Partnership or Arts Derbyshire marketing grant previously.

For further information, email or telephone 01529 414532.
