Arts Grants Scheme

The Council’s Arts Grants Scheme is now live for the April funding round

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:

The deadline for applications is 8 May 2018 for events starting on or after 1 June 2018.

Application Process

Applications should be made on the Arts Grants online form accessed via the link below. 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.
