PLEASE NOTE THE INSPIRE GRANT PROGRAMME IS CURRENTLY CLOSED
The entire point of The World Reimagined is to create a moment and a platform that honours and supports the countless people and organisations who do the work of making racial equality a reality – and to share it with more people. And so we’ve developed the Inspire Programme – which invites you to host activities and events during The World Reimagined (13 August to 31 October 2022) which speak to our shared mission that we can showcase and promote far and wide.
We chose the word inspire deliberately – but it’s not about us, it’s about you and the work you do:
For those long committed to the work of racial justice, you inspire with your expertise, commitment and impact.
For those new to the mission and subject, you inspire with your openness and desire to step into the work and contribute.
Together, you show us that progress is possible. Hard, but possible.
Supported by the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation, we are delighted that one of the ways we can offer support is Money: We have a small grant-making pot available in each of our host cities.
This page describes what those grants are for, the information you need – and you can apply at the bottom of the page!
What grants are available?
Partnership grants – £3,000. These are to support partnerships that bring together:
a smaller, grassroots organisation with a larger organisation to connect audiences and support the growth of the smaller organisation; or
an organisation doing racial justice work with one that is new to it, to broaden out the people who are involved in this work and share expertise.
Micro-grants – £250-500: These are to make your existing or already planned activity a little easier and more possible. Open to individuals and organisations.
How do you apply? (At the bottom of this page!)
Applications are open until 23:59pm on 31 May 2022.
We’ll let applicants know if they have been successful or not by the 24 June 2022,
What does an application involve?
We’re going to make the application as simple as possible for each type of grant.
All applications have to
work towards an event or activity that will take place between 13 August – 31 October 2022.
