The small grants fund aims to support new initiatives, extensions of existing projects, or experiments with new work. Individuals can apply for up to £500 and organisations can apply for up to £1,500. The grant can cover up to 70 per cent of the overall project budget.
The council’s arts team is available to talk through ideas in advance of the deadline and applications from residents based in Battersea and Roehampton, which engage diverse participants and hard to reach groups, are particularly welcome.
Deadlines for the small grant applications are:  
Monday 6 September 2010 - you will be notified by Monday October 4
Monday 6 December 2010 - you will be notified by Monday January 18
