£100,000 of Fellowship Funding will be available in 2020

During Waltham Forest’s year as the first-ever London Borough of Culture in 2019, the Fellowship Funding grants programme was launched, and aimed to support community engaged culture projects on a local level throughout the borough. Find out more about the successful projects here. 

As part of the legacy, Waltham Forest Council have announced a new round of Make it Happen funding, with £100,000 available for artists, organisations, and individuals to create locally relevant, ambitious cultural activity right across the borough from April 2020 until March 2021. 

This is your opportunity to help create a cultural programme for everyone in Waltham Forest to participate in and enjoy.

Funding is available from £100 to £20,000.

Make sure to read the guidance notes in full prior to submitting your application. These will be available very soon.
