Round 3 Awards


The Trustees of the Ulrike Michal Foundation for the Arts are pleased to announce that the Foundation is awarding grants to six arts projects. This is the third time that the foundation has been able to make awards since it was established in December 2019.

The Ulrike Michal Foundation is supporting the following projects:

  • Joseph Schneider — Picturing Community: a project involving art in the public realm, open air drawing and painting workshops and an exhibition, all happening in and around the north Shropshire town of Oswestry.

  • Dingle Community Print CIC — The Collage & Screen Print Social Club: the Liverpool-based charity will be organizing a series of weekly creative evening social events based around drawing, collage and screen print.

  • Royal Cambrian Academy — Conwy Connects Art Workshops: a year of workshops for adults with severe physical and learning difficulties, delivered by six different workshop leaders and based around ceramics, sketchbook work, collage, painting, mark making and mixed media.

  • Colette Lilley — Drawing (Paper) Show: a project based around an exhibition of original drawings at the Bridewell Studios & Gallery, Liverpool, by artists from across the region, the publication of the 10th edition of the Drawing Paper magazine and associated events.

  • Hoole CE Primary School — Memories: an intergenerational art project involving Key Stage 2 school pupils and the elderly residents of a nearby residential home in Chester.

  • Ali Pickard— artist’s talk and family workshop to complement the artist’s contribution to an exhibition project at Ty Pawb, Wrexham.

David Brown, Chairman of the Ulrike Michal Foundation for the Arts said “The Trustees look forward to funding - and viewing – more projects in the coming year including some in areas from which there have been fewer applications to date. We were pleased to support two students this year as, surprisingly, there were no student applications in the previous round.”

The Trustees plan to ask for applications for the fourth round of core and student grants later this year in the autumn so keep an eye on the website for news of the announcement.
