Islington Community Festivals Fund

Each year we provide grant funding to a small number of borough-wide arts-led community festivals enabling them to deliver innovative community focused events that encourage all residents whatever their background to participate and celebrate together.

The Islington Community Festivals Fund is open for applications in January each year and grants are awarded in amounts from £1,500 to a maximum of £4,000 to voluntary, community and faith organisations based in Islington.

Festivals should promote community involvement maximising access to and participation in arts activities while also celebrating Islington’s diversity and the distinctive character of local areas.
