Create Church Street is a £150,000 fund that supports creativity within the Church Street regeneration area. The fund will support creative projects delivered for and with people living in the Church Street ward and Paddington Green estate.
A new initiative created by Westminster City Council in partnership with crowdfunding platform Spacehive, Crowdfund Westminster is designed to enable Westminster residents and businesses to support creative, diverse projects that will benefit our communities.
Organisations and individuals aged over 16 are welcome to take part. It doesn’t matter where you are based, as long as your project benefits the community within the Church Street ward and Paddington Green.
Organisations can apply for up to 80% of the cost of their project to a maximum of £8,000, and individuals can apply for up to 80% of their costs to a maximum of £4,000.
We are using our crowdfunding platform to decide which projects to support. You will need to pitch your project to the community and the projects that gather the most support will receive additional funding from Create Church Street. The beauty of this approach is that we will also be able to match your project to other funding streams where appropriate. There’s more detail on Crowdfund Westminster.
Applications close on Wednesday 14 October 2020.
