Arts funding

Funding for the Arts and Culture sector

Funding is available through the Community Arts Fund and Third Sector Commissioning.

Community Arts Fund

The fund offers opportunities for local community groups and arts organisations to apply for funding of between £250 and £6,000, to deliver a range of arts and cultural projects across Royal Greenwich.

The Community Arts Fund 2017-18 opened in May 2017. It encourages groups to work with artists and develop creative projects for the local community.

Applications are welcome until 31 December 2017. Please contact the Arts and Culture Office prior to submitting you application in order to confirm the availability of funds.
