Arts Grants Scheme

The Council’s Arts Grants Scheme is now closed for the April funding round - Applicants will be advised of the outcome of their submissions by Monday 21 May 2018.

We welcome applications from individuals and organisations looking to produce excellent and engaging art projects across the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, and offers grants of up to £3,000. There will be a large demand on this fund, so unfortunately not all applications will be successful.

Please download and read the grant guidelines to make sure you and your idea qualify, and for those who have not previously applied, we recommend contacting the Arts Service prior to making an application: arts@rbkc.gov.uk

The next round of funding, for projects starting on or after December 1, opens for applications from 21 September onwards. The deadline for applications is November 1 2018

Application Process

Applications should be made on the Arts Grants online form which will be added to this page when the next round of funding opens. As the form must be completed in one sitting and cannot be saved part way through the process, we offer a word version of the form so that you can prepare your answers in advance, and copy these into the online form.
