Do you have an exciting creative idea you want to make a reality? Grants up to £5k for arts, culture & innovation projects in Hackney, Newham, Tower Hamlets & Waltham Forest.

Applications are now open until March 2020 & it's easy to apply, with proposal (2 pages max), budget, supporting documents (5MBs max) and a signed Grant Monitoring Form. You'll get a decision in 6-8 weeks.

The grants aim to connect East London communities with East Bank, impact social change and create the conditions to enable a greater level of collaboration between both local organisations and our East Bank and Culture Mile partner organisations.

We are looking for projects that are aligned with the Connecting People & Places Themes and Priorities.
