Small Grants Scheme Film Launch

We’re excited to launch a new video featuring grantees from our  first round of the Small Grants Scheme, part of the Westfield East Bank Creative Futures Fund. This year, we announced that we were funding 21 projects including Trashion Factory CIC, Film Skool Deluxe and Accumulate, featured in the video.

Grantees received up to £5000 in grants to fuel their ideas for community based projects in Hackney, Newham, Tower Hamlets and Waltham Forest focussing on:

  • Covid- 19 Response
  • Arts & Cultural Activities to Build Skills
  • Employment & Learning Opportunities
  • Innovation & Entrepreneurship 

The Small Grants Scheme, part of the Westfield East Bank Creative Futures Fund, is already transforming and catalysing the lives and careers of people in East London by putting funding, resources and support straight into local people’s hands.

The Westfield East Bank Creative Futures Fund is an ambitious five-year programme that aims to invest £10 million into the local communities of Newham, Tower Hamlets, Hackney and Waltham Forest, supported by Westfield Stratford City.

This flagship project will provide new jobs, learning, training and educational programmes through the means of arts, culture, innovation, public realm and creative placemaking.

To learn how the Westfield East Bank Creative Futures Fund can support you and your ideas, stay up to date and sign up to our newsletter to find out about upcoming funding streams and how to get support with your application.

This video was produced and directed by Emily Chapps who was assisted by production assistant Mohammed Rahman. DOPs were Katya Ganfeld and Olz McCoy, editor was Katya Ganfeld and starring voiceover actor was Chris Cashino.
