Apply for the Community Arts Fund

Due to the high interest in the Community Art Fund, the fund is now closed for projects taking place this year. Details about the Community Art Fund 2020/21 will be available shortly

The Community Arts Fund 

The Community Arts Fund encourages groups to work with artists and develop creative projects for the local community.

When the fund reopens, registered charities, community groups or non-profit making arts organisation, based in or running a project in the Royal Borough will be able to apply for funding of between £250 to £6,000 (once per year). 

Applicants will need to allow time between submission and the project start date – usually a minimum of 2 months (depending on the information supplied in the application).   

All of the projects funded during the 2019/20 round of applications are due to be completed by 31 March 2020

Before you apply

When the fund reopens you will first need to sign up for a website account. You'll then be able to save your form and come back and complete it at a later date.

In your application you'll need to show that your project meets the fund criteria.

Download the Community Arts Fund guidance notes and criteria to see what type of projects we have previously funded.

Make sure you have the relevant documents and information ready. If you want to apply for more than £2,500 you will need to provide us with additional information.
