Commissions, Tenders & Grants
We regularly apply for and win commissions that take our fancy and appeal to the strengths and values of the organisation. These are not always arts-based; we also deliver public service contracts in social care, health, community safety and heritage, using artistic practice as the vehicle to engage people in dialogue about social issues and provide ways for often marginalised or hidden voices to be heard.
We also source grant funding from trusts and foundations to deliver our core programme of arts projects for people in East London. In recognition of the value and success of our work, we are often re-funded year on year by key trusts for whom our work plays a significant part in fulfilling their key objectives. It’s very rewarding for us to be able to make strong relationships with funders who really understand the way we work and the kind of social, artistic and policy changes our work brings about.
