Dawn is encouraging local people to apply forthe Brent 2020 Culture Fund.
The 2020 Culture Fund is a grant scheme of £500,000 to support local people, organisations and groups in Brent to lead their own cultural activities as part of the year as London Borough of Culture 2020.
According to its website, the “2020 Culture Fund will support arts and cultural activities at locations across Brent in 2020 including: events, performances, workshops, exhibitions, talks, walks, installations, festivals, carnivals, screenings and participatory projects of all shapes and sizes and across all art forms.”
Dawn Butler, MP for Brent Central, said:
“I am really excited for Brent’s year as London Borough of Culture in 2020, and I want as many people and local businesses as possible to get involved and help us celebrate it and make it a year to remember.
In Brent, our diversity is our strength and it is important that Brent 2020 showcases the vast talent and diversity of our great Borough. So I encourage people and organisations from all backgrounds and all parts of Brent to apply. I want everyone no matter their class or income bracket, no matter the size of their organisation or charity, to get in involved.
I am looking forward to the great programme of events that I know Brent will provide.”
The 2020 Culture Fund opened on 17 Jan 2019. Applications can be made online via the Brent grants portal here as well as further information.
There will also be two more rounds of funding to apply for. Round 2 will open on 13 June 2019 and Round 3 will open on 16 Jan 2020.
