Please contact to discuss your submission.
Step 1: Online submission process
We strongly encourage artists and/or arts organizations to meet with the London Arts Council prior to making a submission. Consultation meetings must be booked in advance.
Submissions must be received in whole by the submission deadline. Please ensure you are familiar with the program requirements, and technical aspects of the online submission form well in advance of the deadline.
Step 2: Jury process
Submissions are reviewed by independent, volunteer juries that advise on priority funding areas, assess submissions, and make recommendations on the awarding of investments.
The CAIP Jury is comprised of approximately fifteen arts professionals, community members, and arts patrons from across London. We invite Expressions of Interest to be a CAIP juror from all qualified parties; however, you cannot serve as a juror in a year when you have submitted an investment request.
Step 3: Recognition, requirements and reporting process
If you receive an investment, you will be required to:
acknowledge the London Arts Council and the City of London's support by including print/digital logos and verbal credit lines as described in our investment agreement and on our Logos & Acknowledgments page;
any other requirements as outlined in our investment agreement;
submit a final report, including a reconciled project budget.
