Culture Seeds – grants for community-led cultural projects

The Mayor of London’s Culture Seeds programme supports grassroots organisations with grants of up to £5,000 for local arts and culture activities which are created and organised by local people.

As well as providing funding, the programme offers help with marketing and monitoring, volunteer recruitment and management and applying for future funding.

Previous projects have included:

  • drama workshops
  • creative writing
  • music and recording projects
  • a World War I centenary project
  • Somali Week celebrations.

Priority is given to projects that support people on lower incomes and which connect communities that lack access to cultural resources and funding.

If you have a project that focuses on local people and that brings communities together, you can apply now.  Find out more at the Culture Seeds webpage.
