Humanities Cultural Programme Funds OPEN

A background of small colourful circles of light, overlaid with a white box containing the words 'Humanities Cultural Programme: Expressions of Interest, Micro-Fund, Project Fund, Visiting Fellowship Fund'.

We are delighted to re-open our Humanities Cultural Programme funds, with applications due by noon, 11 January 2021.

The Expressions of Interest opportunity remains open on a rolling basis, open to University of Oxford researchers or students looking for potential external collaborators and to external organisations looking to collaborate on projects with Oxford researchers and students. Click here to submit an expression of interest.

The Micro-Fund welcomes applications of up to £500 to facilitate early conversations between students/researchers and external organisations who may be interested in collaborating on a future student- or research-led creative project.  This funding can be used for travel expenses, modest professional fees, and other appropriate expenditure that enables and supports early conversations to explore mutually created and beneficial connections and potential future collaborations. Click here to apply.

The Project Fund funds activities due to take place between 2021 and 2024. Activities which are eligible for HCP Project Funding include (but are not limited to): Performances of any kind, installations, displays, and exhibitions, panel events that bring new people to Oxford and community co-creation projects that lead to a public event(s). As well as funding, TORCH provides successful applicants with in-kind support including a website and promotion, dedicated events team, and evaluation support.

The Visiting Fellowship Fund is set up to support Oxford Researchers in hosting Visiting Fellows in Oxford. Building on TORCH’s existing visiting fellowship schemes, this new stream is specifically for Visiting Fellows who are artists, writers, arts practitioners, and performers of any kind. Fellows are hosted by a University of Oxford postholder who must hold a contract for the whole period covered by the application.  Visiting Fellows can hold the association for up to 1 calendar year, and fellows must be in Oxford for part of that year to help curate and deliver the associated activities.  Each Fellowship must include three (or more) events/activities planned with and delivered by the fellow.

We look forward to receiving your applications.
