Support for the arts

We support and promote the development of arts organisations and their activities across the community working with key stakeholders.

Through our grants, networks, policies and cultural programme we work in collaboration with many partners to celebrate and support Kingston's vitality and heritage as a place to work, study, live and enjoy.

In this section you can find out about the creative organisations working in Kingston, as well as information about arts and other cultural activities taking place in the borough.

Arts Award

We support schools and organisations to deliver Art Award, a nationally recognised accreditation. If you are a member of a school, college or community organisation that would like to find out more about delivering the Arts Award please contact Arts Commissioning.
