Mayor of London Launches £1m Culture Seeds Fund

Culture Seeds is being launched on the same day as the Mayor publishes his draft Culture Strategy – Culture for All Londoners. The Mayor’s strategy lays out his vision to sustain London’s position as a global capital of culture, while also ensuring that all Londoners have access to culture on their doorstep.

The funding is aimed at groups that usually miss out on grants because they are too small, too informal or from marginalised communities. Not-for-profit organisations with an annual turnover of less than £50,000 can apply.

Grants of between £1,000 and £5,000 are available for or 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.

To be eligible, projects must:

  • Have local people at their heart.
  • Share creative experiences to bring communities together.

Priority will be given to projects that support people on lower incomes, and connect communities that lack access to cultural resources and funding.

Successful applicants will receive support from City Hall and will be invited to join the Culture Seeds Network to help them make the most of their project.

Full details can be found on the Groundwork website
