Meet the Funder Roadshow - Culture Seeds

 Registration is closed for this event
MVSC will host a Meet the Funder Roadshow on 5th November, giving local organisations the chance to meet grant officers and discuss project ideas.

Culture Seeds is open for applications.


Culture Seeds is part of the Mayor of London’s Strategy for Culture, Culture for all Londoners.  It's part of the Mayor’s ambition to put culture at the heart of local communities, where it belongs.




For not-for-profit organisations with an annual turnover of less than £50,000.


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


Culture Seeds will support not-for-profit, small or informal organisations and groups as well as individuals as it is often harder for them to access funding.


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
  • heritage projects
  • digital art
  • cultural events/festivals
  • literature, spoken word, reading groups
  • craft and making activities
  • choirs/singing groups
  • creative writing.

Projects must have local people at their heart, and offer shared creative experiences to bring communities together.  Culture Seeds will prioritise projects that support people on lower incomes, and connect communities that lack access to cultural resources and funding.


This is a two-year rolling programme, so you can apply at any time until March 2020 (for projects that finish by May 2020) for funding between £1,000- £5,000.


Places on the surgery are limited so please register to secure your slot.
