About Prosper North

Prosper North is funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund and will be providing free business support for cultural heritage organisations until February 2021. More information about the programme can be found on their website.

The aims of the programme are:

1.       Increase growth and resilience of organisations

2.       Improve their impacts in the community

3.       Enable organisations to access investment from the Northern Cultural Regeneration Fund and attract funds from other sources

Prosper North welcome applications from a range of enterprises and organisations, which could be, for example, museums, historic buildings, community groups, maker collectives, festivals, music venues or arts studios. Applicants must also demonstrate community or social benefits, and promote, exhibit, educate about, safeguard, curate or showcase tangible or intangible heritage.

The application deadline to join their next cohort of cultural heritage organisations on the Prosper North programme is Monday 3 Feb.

Applications submitted by 3 Feb will be considered to receive free business support (1:1 advice, workshops, webinars, peer learning meet ups) on the programme, starting in March 2020.
