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.
