Freelands Foundation are running two open call funding opportunities for grants to support visual art institutions working with schools and teachers on educational and learning projects, with an emphasis on supporting and empowering teachers.

The Spring 2023 Fund opens for Expressions of Interest on 8 February 2023 and closes on 15 March 2023. A variety of eligible art organisations can apply for grants of up to £25,000 per year for projects over one or two years. We are particularly interested in applications for tried and tested, existing projects, where the funding is allocated to enhance and/or scale the programmes and their impact.

Freelands Foundation want to hear your plans for bold and innovative projects that build collaborative relationships between schools and visual art organisations. They are looking for projects that centre teachers in creative approaches to art education that inspire and engage young people.
