Redbridge Arts Grants
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.

About the grants
Please read the Guidance Notes to decide if the grant is right for your project before completing the Application Form. We strongly advise you to contact us to talk through your project before submitting the grant application.
The maximum of any one grant will not be more than £3,000 and we will fund up to 60% of overall costs. Other income sources such as ticket/refreshment sales, sponsorship, funding and grants must be sought in addition. Match funding in kind is acceptable but at least 10% of the overall project should be a cash contribution. Most grants will tend to be for around 40% to 50% of the overall project costs.
We 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.
The grant is administered on behalf of the London Borough of Redbridge by the Culture Team within Vision Redbridge Culture and Leisure.
