Arts Grants Scheme

The Council’s Arts Grants Scheme is now open for the November 2018 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 1 November, for projects starting on or after 1 December 2018. Applications submitted after midnight on the closing date will not be accepted.

Application Process

Applications should be made on the Arts Grants online form here:


Please note: 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.
