AfL members and visitors to AfL’s website may be interested to know of a new fund for London’s local community groups:
Funding opportunity from the Mayor of London: Culture Seeds
These small grants may be of particular interest to archives that have friends groups or that work closely with local history or other community groups.
The new grants will be used to support community-led cultural projects in every London borough.
Culture Seeds will support small or informal organisations and groups as well as individuals as it is often harder for them to access funding.
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.
The grants are for funding arts, culture and heritage projects and activities. This includes:
visual and performing arts (like music, dance and theatre)
filmmaking and film screenings
literature, spoken word, reading groups
craft and making activities
