  • The Elephant Trust

    Created: 09/07/2018

    This Trust was set up in 1975 to make it possible for artists and those presenting their work to undertake and complete projects when frustrated by a lack of funds. It is committed to helping artists and art institutions/galleries that depart from the routine and signal new, distinct and imaginative sets of possibilities.

    The Trustees’ main objective is to support new work.  Given The Elephant Trust’s modest resources, grants have usually been limited to £2,000, but some larger grants of up to £5,000 may be awarded. Priority is given to artists in the fine arts and small organisations and galleries who should submit well argued, imaginative proposals for making or producing new work or exhibitions.

    The following categories are not supported:

    •  Arts Festivals; 
    •  Group Exhibitions;
    •  Charities organising community projects;
    •  Students;
    •  Educational or other studies;
    •  Residencies or research;
    •  Symposia or conferences;
    •  Theatres;
    •  Catalogues; and
    •  Projects taking place outside the UK

    Next deadline: 8 October 2018
