Redbridge Arts Grant • Vision RCL

Redbridge Arts Grant

Redbridge Arts Grants aim to make sure residents can take part in a wide range of arts and cultural related activities. The grants are available to voluntary organisations and community groups based or planning to work in the borough.

Organisations can apply for grants of up to £3,000 although most grants will be under £2,000. A total of £27,000 of grant funding will be awarded through two application rounds each year.

The fund aims to encourage a range of ideas and proposals linked to artistic creativity and development, seeking new ideas and innovation. The projects will be time limited and generally include events, workshops and activities for people to participate in although we will also consider applications for research and development.

As the threat of Covid-19 remains within our community, we need to ensure all funded activities are delivered in line with the current government guidelines to keep our participants, audiences, artists and the wider community safe.

Within your application please outline what safety measures you will be taking in order to keep everyone safe and what your Covid-19 contingency plans are if government guidelines change. Please explain how you will respond to them and demonstrate how you will do this, for example delivering your activity outdoors, online or delaying until circumstances change.

For the most recent and upcoming changes to government guidelines please refer to website.
