Answered By:

The Cultural Skills Fund was promoted on the Arts Council England, LDA and CompeteFor websites. The entry on CompeteFor has been viewed over 1200 times to date (06.11.08). 100 Arts Council staff received details of the fund to email to their contacts, including borough arts officers and regularly funded organisations, as did the London Voluntary Sector Council. The Cultural Opportunity Manager - London 2012 promoted the fund at events and in discussions with relevant organisations. The deadline of the 07 November 2008 is for the pre-qualification stage. At the time of writing the borough analysis of applications is not available.
