The focus of this year’s NRTF conference is how rural
touring schemes, and those involved in participatory arts activities at a
community level, can engage with wider agendas. Rural touring is not just
about putting on good shows in community venues, it is also about building the
capacity of local communities to shape local arts provision, promoting social
inclusion and diversity, and contributing to social and economic agendas. The
conference (being held at the University of East Anglia) will feature examples
of some of the excellent work already being instigated by members, and
opportunities to learn from each other about the realities of developing new
audiences and moving into new areas of work.

Paul Hamlyn Refugee and Asylum Seeker Young People
area - UK
deadline - Outlines 29 Sept, Full Applications 1 Nov
The Paul Hamlyn Foundation has extended its Refugee
and Asylum Seeker Young People Programme.
Aims: to encourage projects within the UK that help
vulnerable 11-18 year olds to become integrated into mainstream provision, and
to help build the capacity of organisations that represent such young people.
They particularly want to see applications which: focus on the needs of
unaccompanied young people in imaginative and practical ways (particularly at
the transition ages of 16+ and 18); enable Refugee Community Organisations to
work in effective partnerships with other voluntary sector and statutory
organisations on behalf of young refugees and asylum seekers through the arts,
learning and extra curricular activities; draw public attention to the need to
involve young refugees and asylum seekers within the mainstream community and
to the importance of integration; offer new approaches to joined up service
delivery in a particular locality, and for the families of young refugees and
asylum seekers; involve projects that are time limited up to three years; show
strong evidence of consultation with, and the involvement of, the young people
Grants previously made have varied from £33,000 to
£90,000 over the lifespan of the grant.
