Arts Grants Scheme

The Council’s Arts Grants Scheme is now closed. The next round of funding will open April 2019.

The Arts Grants Scheme welcomes 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 is a large demand on this fund, so unfortunately not all applications will be successful.

Application Process

The Arts Grant Scheme has been running for over 15 years, funding over 350 excellent and engaging arts projects. The fund is open across 2 rounds each year and we welcome applications from a wide range of arts based activities within in the borough from participatory arts based projects, tours, artist-based talks, research and development, theatre, dance etc.
