Digital Innovation Fund for the Arts in Wales

Arts organisations in Wales are invited to apply for funding to undertake innovation projects, using digital technology as a tool to help improve audience reach and engagement, or develop new business models.
The Digital Innovation Fund for the Arts in Wales is a partnership between Arts Council of Wales and Nesta. The fund is looking to support arts organisations across Wales who want to work with digital technologies to:
  • Expand their audience reach and engagement.
  • Explore new business models.
The programme adopts a four-stage process:
  1. Identify Challenges and Opportunities
  2. Build Teams and Generate Ideas
  3. Research and Develop
  4. Embed and Scale.
Organisations invited to take part in the Build Teams and Generate Ideas phase will be awarded a fixed sum of £5,000 to develop ideas and form a partnership with a suitable technology company.
From this stage, organisations will be able to pitch for up to £75,000 of funding to undertake a full R&D project, including 12 days of business support and a comprehensive workshop programme to support the project.
Stage one - Identify Challenges and Opportunities - is open to all organisations and a series of workshops will run until the end of October. The deadline for applications to the second stage - Build Teams and Generate Ideas - is 11 December 2015. The third stage - Research and Develop - will close to applications on 25 April 2016.
