Current Grant Deadline 30th November, 2016
The new Arts Network Sutton executive committee will be temporarily halting our grants program, following the current applications deadline. This will give us the time necessary to investigate additional and alternative funding options and decide how best we can serve the membership moving forward. More information will be given early in the new year.
