Renaissance Strategic Support Fund: Round 3

Arts Council England will be launching Round 3 of the Renaissance Strategic Support Fund on 3 October 2013.

A one-year programme is planned, and funding can be requested for activities taking place in 2014-15. Activities can start on or after 1 April 2014. Activities must end by 31 March 2015. It is planned to follow the same process as for Round 2.

There will be an Expression of Interest stage followed by a full application stage. Expressions of Interest will be shortlisted against published criteria; shortlisted applicants will be invited to make a full application.  Full applications will be assessed against published criteria, and award announcements are scheduled for February 2014.

ACE are revising the priorities from Renaissance Strategic support fund round 2 and are consulting with the HLF. The priorities for round 3, and full timetable, will be published with the guidance on 3 October.

Full guidance for this round will be available when the online portal for the Expression of Interest stage opens on 3 October 2013.  See ACE's website for details.
