Culture Seeds is now CLOSED for applications

Culture Seeds is part of the Mayor of London’s draft Strategy for Culture, Culture for all Londoners.

The grants will be used to support community-led cultural projects in every London borough.

Culture Seeds aims to help groups that usually miss out on grants because they are too small, too informal or from marginalised communities.

The Mayor wants to see more local arts and culture activities created and put on by local people in London. That’s why Culture Seeds is aimed firmly at grassroots organisations.

About Culture Seeds

Culture Seeds is a two-year rolling programme (March 2018 – 6 March 2020) and is now closed.
