£4.7 million is available to the capital's artists through London Arts Development Fund
From April 2002, London Arts - the arts funding and development agency for the capital - is offering £4.7 million in grants to artists and arts organisations through its Development Fund programme.
In 16 strands, the London Arts Development Fund covers a wide range of art forms and opportunities. These include bursaries for travel and professional training; funds for the development and production of new work; and support for artists' residencies. An additional six funding strands are offered through London Arts' partner organisations.
London Arts promotes access to the arts for all Londoners. It seeks to support the work of disabled artists and work reflecting the cultural diversity of London. London Arts is seeking to broaden the range of people who apply for the 2002/3 Fund. Some specific objectives are to encourage artistic work from refugee communities and projects which strengthen the links between London's diverse communities and those of other world cities.
