Lincolnshire business offered up to £5,000 to get creative

Grants ranging from £500 to £5,000 are being offered to businesses and artists to stimulate ideas for creative art projects to take place in Lincoln this summer.

The invitation has come from Lincoln BIG, and is branded as Lincoln Creates, which says projects could be installations, exhibitions, street decorations, performances and/or workshops. Says Project Consultant Sue Bell: “We are particularly keen to see collaboration between artists and businesses.”

The funding for Lincoln Creates – in the form of grants ranging from £500 to £5,000 – has been made possible with some of the proceeds from the public auction of the Lincoln Imps in October 2021.

Sue Bell said: “We’re looking forward to seeing some exciting projects come forward on the relaunch of Lincoln Creates! This is a brilliant opportunity to revitalise the high street and bring the city centre alive with vibrant and creative artwork”.

Due to Covid-19, Lincoln Creates was put on pause in 2019 and is now being relaunched to bring new life into the city.

Projects such as this are important not only for the city centre but also provides a brilliant opportunity for businesses and artists to get involved with Lincoln BIG’s city events and promote all that Lincoln has to offer.

To apply for a grant under the Lincoln Creates banner download and complete an application form from the Lincoln BIG web site:

The deadline for submissions is May 12th.
