WE REGRET THAT WE ARE NO LONGER ABLE TO ACCEPT UNSOLICITED APPLICATIONS FOR SUPPORT AND ANY APPLICATIONS WE RECEIVE WILL NOT BE CONSIDERED.
As a small private foundation, the Nelson Meers Foundation aims to be responsive to the needs of the cultural sector and its audiences. For this reason, our approach to funding is deliberately flexible, and reviewed regularly, to enable us to be adaptive.
Our approach is to identify a very small number of organisations with which we work to develop programs that will promote innovative creative practices. We aim to privilege programs that build the capacity of the organisation and encourage cross-sectoral collaboration. We will also continue to support our existing project partners, for many of whom we provide multi-year support.
Whilst we regret that we are no longer able to accept applications for funding, we believe that this enables us to focus our limited resources on strategically identifying initiatives that will be of the greatest benefit to the cultural sector and to the community.
