The fund supports a range of music, theatre, and dance performing projects. It aims to increase participation in the arts within Royal Greenwich and to encourage partnerships between established organisations, community groups, and schools wherever possible.  

The fund supports activities that: 

  • deliver new community-based arts and cultural projects 

  • encourage participation in the arts by a diverse cross-section of the community 

  • create participatory work that animates the town squares and outdoor spaces; attracting local audiences 

  • develop partnerships between local cultural organisations, networks, and groups. 

Projects that received Community Arts Funding from 2021 to 2022 included A Bijou Salon Collecting by Avant Gardening. Workshop participants make creative responses to oral histories shared by members if the LGBTQ+ community. Their work will be exhibited later this year. 

The Friends of Plumstead Gardens received funding for Plumstead Gardens: Love Your Space. Ten workshops took place at the Plumstead Centre to decorate one hundred ceramic leaf shaped tiles, which became a nature inspired art installation in the park itself. 

UK Latin Community delivered Latin American Fest with Community Arts Funding. The one-day festival celebrated Latin-American culture and communities in the UK through three tradiitonal dance workshops run by the group FLAG UK (Federation of Latin American Artists Groups).
