Small Experiment & Community Catalyst funding available for Swale & Medway

What is a Small Experiment?

This is an opportunity for anyone to experiment with innovative methods of planning and shaping projects and involving local people in activities.  You could put on a new kind of event, research a larger idea, start something to bring together people in your area, work with new partners in the arts or elsewhere.  If you have ideas, 'Ideas Test' want to hear from you, and can provide up to £2,000 towards your Experiment.

How to apply:

There’s no form!  You need to explain what your idea is, how you will test it and who will benefit.  Your idea needs to fit with the Programme Principles and Aims. You can write up to 500 words in what ever format suits you. You can submit your information by emailing experiments@creativepeopleplace.info or post it to: Experiments at Ideas Test, Creek Creative, No 1 Abbey Street, Faversham, Kent. ME13 7BE

What is a Community Catalyst?

Do you know someone in your local area who regularly gets people together and makes amazing things happen? We want to work with them to reach more people and help develop our programme. You can nominate Community Catalysts from across Swale and Medway.
