09.09.16 - Heritage Lottery Fund announce upcoming Kick the Dust funding workshops

The Hertiage Lottery Fund will be running a series of information workshops across the UK, providing more detail about Kick the Dust as well as their other funding for projects involving young people.

Kick the Dust is a £10 million grants programme for ambitious youth-focused projects that transform how heritage organisations engage with young people (those aged 11-25). Grants of between £500,000 to £1 million will be available to organisations as part of a consortium, which should include heritage and youth organisations.

This initiative was named by young people, and aims to inspire change and ensure heritage is relevant to young people's lives.

The workshops will take prospective applicants through the programme details and provide an opportunity to network with other interested organisations.

Workshops are being held on the following dates:

  • Wednesday 28 September: London
  • Friday 30 September: Edinburgh
