ACE Fund
Details about the Wimbledon Foundation's Arts and Community Engagement Fund. READ MORE

The Wimbledon Foundation is delighted to announce its ACE Fund, short for Arts and Community Engagement. 

We are looking for one outstanding creative, inspiring and engaging project to work closely local communities and individuals in Merton and /or Wandsworth.

It could be anything from young people creating and curating their own arts and creative festival; taking the beauty of experiences and memories of a local community or period in time and turn that into poetry; and arts installation or exhibition; roaming street performances – anything that you can imagine that creative engages local communities and individuals – and also reaches a wider audience through exhibitions, screenings, performances or other creative ways!

One successful project will receive up to £50,000 for a 12-18 month project and shortlisted applicants will be asked to present their idea to a small panel in mid-December.

Interested in applying? Please read the funding guidelines and FAQs carefully and the word application form, both downloadable below.
