Apply for the Community Arts Fund

We are open to applications until 31 December 2021.

The Community Arts Fund supports a range of music, theatre, dance, performance projects and participatory outdoor arts and events. The fund aims to stimulate participation and engagement in the arts within the Royal Borough of Greenwich whilst encouraging partnerships between established organisations, community groups and schools wherever possible.

Who can apply?

Registered charities, community groups or non-profit making organisations which are:

  • Based within the Royal Borough of Greenwich
  • Based outside of the Royal Borough of Greenwich but applying for a project that will take place within the Royal Borough and involve and benefit residents

Applicants are only eligible to receive one Community Arts Fund grant during this funding period (ending December 2021).

Applicants will need to allow time between submission and the project start date – usually a minimum of 8 weeks (depending on the information supplied in the application).  

All of the projects funded during the 2021/22 round of applications must be completed by 31 March 2022.

Before you apply

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.
