Piloting Creative Public Engagement – Engaging Libraries from Carnegie Trust



Applications are still being taken by The Carnegie Trust for their Engaging Libraries Programme.

The Carnegie Trust has set up a pilot programme that is designed specifically to allow public libraries the opportunity to move beyond health promotion, expand their range of service and explore new dynamic and discursive ways in which to connect people with health and wellbeing.

It is an opportunity to get creative with how they engage audiences.

The Trust advises that libraries have a key role in delivering on health and wellbeing, and that they do great work promoting health information; they conclude that from national strategies across the UK and Ireland, public libraries have a role to play in this arena.

Grants from £5,000 to £15,000 are available to public libraries that want to pilot creative and imaginative public engagement projects on health and wellbeing: Up to £25,000 can be available for more ambitious projects.

The fund will support applications that take in one or more activities and events that:

  • Involve engaging with members of the community in creative and imaginative ways
  • Engage people on the themes connected to health and wellbeing
  • Involve activities like participation, conversation, interaction and listening
  • Are developed and delivered directly by library staff inside or outside the library space with others or are developed and delivered in partnership with others, with activity happening inside the library space

The deadline for applications is 23rd August 2017
