New Community Grants for Cultural Projects

Mar 26, 2018 | Funding

Greater London Authority (GLA) have launched Culture Seeds, a new micro-grants scheme for grassroots community organisations and individuals for community led culture projects. Grants of between £1,000 – £5,000 are available www.london.gov.uk/culture-seeds for individuals, not-for-profit organisations with a turnover less than £50k. The programme will be open for applications from May but people can register their interest from today.

The Mayor wants to see more local arts and culture activities created and put on by local people in London. That’s why Culture Seeds is aimed firmly at grassroots organisations.
The grants are for funding arts, culture and heritage projects and activities. This includes visual and performing arts (music, dance and theatre), film screenings, digital art, cultural events/festivals, literature, spoken word, reading groups, craft and making activities, choirs/singing groups and creative writing.
Projects must have local people at their heart. We want projects that offer shared creative experiences to bring communities together. We will prioritise projects that support people on lower incomes, and connect communities that lack access to cultural resources and funding.

Who can apply?

  • individual Londoners
  • not-for-profit organisations with an annual turnover of less than £50,000

You don’t have to be a formally constituted group. However, you should have a bank account with two signatories or nominate an organisation who can accept the funds on your behalf.
You must also provide two referees who can vouch for your work in your local community.

How much can I apply for?

You can apply for anything between £1,000-£5,000.

When can I apply?

You can register your interest now and apply for funding from 1 May 2018. You will hear back after around six weeks.
