Arts and Culture Strategic Funding

We currently provide strategic funding for cultural and creative organisations as part of the Third Sector Commissioning programme. The following local arts organisations receive funding from the Arts and Culture Strategic Commissioning Fund:

The aim of the funding

The current funding was re-commissioned from 2015 onwards. The aim of the funding is:

  • to support a variety of specialist arts and creative service providers affording professional arts activities in Royal Greenwich for the performing and/or visual arts
  • to support the delivery of high quality arts, cultural and creative projects and programmes that will widen engagement in the arts through increased access to arts and creative activities across Royal Greenwich
  • to support programmes and projects that feed into the Royal Greenwich Festivals and in particular promote music, dance, film, street theatre, theatre and the performing arts
  • to support work in the arts and cultural sector that actively addresses diversity, inclusion and social cohesion by reducing disadvantage, increasing equality of opportunity to all sections of the community.
