Applications open for ACE Accelerator Programme

1 May 2019

Second round of innovative environmental sustainability programme open for applications.

Arts Council England and Julie’s Bicycle have now opened applications for the second cohort of their Accelerator Programme. The programme aims to foster enterprise, innovation and future thinking on climate and the environment across the arts and cultural sector. The programme provides the space, resource, time and expertise necessary for organisations to develop their ambitious ideas around environmental practice into tangible projects.

Application is a three-stage process:

  1. Interested organisations or consortiums must submit an Expression of Interest to Julie’s Bicycle by 7 June 2019.
  2. A selection of organisations will be invited to attend a half-day workshop in July 2019 (in either London, Manchester or Birmingham) to further develop their idea.
  3. The submission of a full proposal by 14 October 2019.

From April 2010 to September 2021, successful organisations will receive support through tailored expert mentoring, personalised one-to-one support and a training programme adapted from Julie’s Bicycle’s Creative Climate Leadership course.
