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 with the addition of the Shelagh Wakely Bequest 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. Successful applicants should leave a minimum of two years before reapplying for help with a new project.
Applicants are asked to consider these guidelines carefully, as well as the categories not supported, before applying, to be sure that their project falls within the remit of The Elephant Trust.
