|Series title:||Combined Arts Unit: New Collaborations Fund, 1991-1996|
The New Collaborations initiative was started by the Multidisciplinary and Arts Centres Committee in 1990/91. The fund made £200,000 available to assist artists who wished to develop their work in an interdisciplinary way. In this first year 160 applications were received, the requests totalling over £1,400,000. As responsibility for the scheme passed to the newly formed Combined Arts Unit the New Collaborations Fund continued to develop and made £240,000 available in 1991/92
This series contains the records which were created during the administration of the New Collaborations Fund. It consists of the project production and the research and development applications put forward by artists for consideration during the early 1990s. There are also reports from the projects which were funded by the scheme and some papers relating to the general running of the scheme.
There is no list of individual files in this series currently available.
