What is a Go & See Bursary?

The Herefordshire's a Great Place Go & See Bursaries, supported by Heritage Lottery Fund and Arts Council England, help people from Herefordshire go on research trips to pioneering arts and heritage initiatives across the UK.

The scheme has been designed to foster connections and support the exchange of skills and knowledge.

By asking everyone who receives a bursary to share and showcase the findings of their research trip, we can all play a part in strengthening Herefordshire's cultural and creative scene.

Tell me more...

You can apply for a bursary of between £300 and £500. 

You can visit any cultural initiative, group, project or place outside of Herefordshire where you'll pick up skills and knowledge to improve your arts or heritage practice in Herefordshire.

It is essential that you share and showcase what you've learned when you return to Herefordshire.

The funding can only cover travel, accommodation, and the cost of showcasing your findings.

Who can apply?

The scheme is open to groups and individuals, including freelancers, who currently work or volunteer in the arts or heritage sector in Herefordshire.
