Funding opportunities for creative and digital sectors

Posted Thursday 16 May 2013

Kingston University is a delivery partner for the London Creative and Digital Fusion Collaborative Awards jointly funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) and the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).

This two-year awards project will provide funding for small to medium enterprises (SMEs) in the creative and digital sectors to access support and facilities from experts within selected higher education and research organisations, such as Kingston University.

There are awards of between £5,000–£10,000 available to help build long-term partnerships to ultimately strengthen London's creative and digital sectors.

Applications will be rolling over the two years, but the first deadline for SMEs to apply is Friday 24 May 2013.

Find out more information and access the funding application process (PDF).

Kingston is involved with this project due to its expertise and knowledge of the creative and digital sectors. We are also a partner in the Arts and Humanities Research Council funded three-year Creativeworks London project aimed at boosting creative businesses in the capital by nurturing new partnerships and commercial opportunities between academia and businesses.

If your London-based organisation lies in the creative, digital, fashion, music, arts, museums, performance, architecture, media or publishing fields – you could qualify for funding and access external support from either of these schemes.
