Tell Your Story Grants

An application pack and information to support your application can found at the bottom of this page.

The Offer

Up to £2500 grant for schools, settings and colleges to partner with a local artist or arts-based organisation on a project to develop children and young people’s oracy and/or emotional literacy.

The IOA and LCEP will showcase partnerships and activities where possible through the Summer Arts Hullaballoo in Ipswich between March and August 2022. However, this timeline/opportunity shouldn’t constrain your plans, which can take place at any point in the year to suit your curriculum plans.


Open to Early Years settings, schools (including special schools and alternative provision) and post 16 sixth forms and colleges within the Ipswich Opportunity Area, and Felixstowe.

Conditions of funding

Participating schools, settings and colleges should buy in some partnership activity from an external local artist or arts organisation.

Participating schools, settings and colleges are strongly encouraged to engage with support from local leaders in cultural education. Contact Jess Croll Knight, Ipswich Cultural Education Partnerships Officer on for support.
