The ESRC has just posted on their website the news that the call for applications for the 2013 Festival has been delayed.
They now anticipate that the call will open on 15 April with a closing date of 13 May for applications requesting funding support of up to £2,000, and 7 May for applications to hold an event and not requesting funding. This means that the call for applications will be open for only four weeks. The message from the ESRC is to start planning your event as soon as possible.
BU held four events as part of the 2012 Festival. Our successful applicants were: Kip Jones, Richard Shipway, Debbie Sadd, Ruth Towse and Martin Kretschmer. This is what Debbie has to say about being part of the Festival:
“It is a wonderful opportunity to start a bidding journey and gain confidence in ‘winning’ some money!! The process was very straight forward and the support from the ESRC invaluable. The event itself was a resounding success.”
