Grants of up to £5,000 each are being made available to support arts and cultural festivals that take place in and around parts of North Kensington .
Westway Trust, the charity that manages 23 acres of land under the Westway flyover in the community interest, is making £75,000 of grants available to support and recognise local talent, diversity, and heritage.
It is in addition to several other funds the Trust makes available including the Community Grants Programme , which supports projects and events organised by social enterprises, charities and voluntary organisations in the borough.
The Festivals Fund comes alongside the launch of the Westway Arts Network which will put local people at the heart of decision making about how Westway Trust supports arts and culture in the area.
Miriam Nelken, Westway Trust head of culture and partnerships, said: "The Westway area is home to arts and cultural festivals of local, national and international significance.
"The Festivals Fund aims to support existing festivals as well as encouraging new festivals to develop, increasing opportunities to showcase local creativity and talent."
The deadline for applications for events starting after April 30 and before October 10, is March 10.
