The Cockayne
– Grants for the Arts fund aims to support art as a way of enriching life
experience. Grants are focused on arts projects in London that provide
opportunities to artists from diverse cultures for the creation,  development,
performance, or exhibition in the performing, literary, or visual arts.

grant size will range from £1,000 to £25,000, with a few exceptional projects
being considered at a higher level. No income threshold.

Cockayne – Grants for the Arts is a donor-advised fund of The London Community Foundation.

Current priorities are

  1. New work or ground-breaking re-interpretations of classic repertoire
    that demonstrate the potential: for artistic excellence, to reach large
    and diverse audiences, and/or to make a significant, new contribution
    to the art form.
  2. Art that is experimental, risk-taking, and/or engages controversial issues.
  3. Projects that involve young artists.

Please note: Arts projects that are primarily focused on social/political advocacy, community arts and arts-education programmes are not a funding priority of Cockayne – Grants for the Arts.
