ARTCRY supports responsive, political artworks in public space with grants up to £2,500. 

Below is information about work we support, our values and how to apply. 

We support political work with a goal to make change happen. 


The work is time-critical

The reason that ARTCRY exists is to encourage artists to make work which responds to social/political events happening now by giving a decision on applications within seven days. 


Any work funded by us must require an immediate start in order to make it's point.  

All work must happen for free, in public space in the UK. 

We are looking to support artistic interventions in public space. Our focus is on a UK audience.


Where and how you choose to put your work on needs to clearly connect with the people you want it to reach. 

We value work which...

Starts a conversation 

Can startle people with a new point of view

Makes audiences think more deeply

Strives to make an impact

Respects difference

Has a spirit of openness and accessibility at its core.

Is representative 


Areas of interest

ARTCRY is an open fund, you can apply on any topic at any time. We have two areas of interest. We are particularly interested in funding work which explores: 

1. Transparency and accountability in our democracy. 

2. Human rights and fighting for equality. Particularly rights of refugees and asylum seekers in the UK.
