Westfield East Bank Creative Futures Fund

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.

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

The programme aims to transform and catalyse the lives and careers of people in East London by putting funding, resources and support straight into local people’s hands.

If you’re looking for funding to support projects based in East London, check out our Small Grant Scheme, Medium Grant Scheme and Large Grant Scheme. Round 2 will be open for all schemes in 2021.

Round 1 of the Small Grant Scheme awarded over £102,004 to 21 projects.

Round 1 of the Medium Grant Scheme awarded £160,000 to 11 projects.

Round 1 of the Large Grant Scheme awarded £148,718 to 3 projects.
