Creative Neighbourhoods is the Barbican’s initiative to help culture and creativity thrive in the City of London. Part of this is The Imagine Fund, a community grant-making and support scheme in which decisions about funding are made by the community themselves, and the Community Impact Collective (CIC), a collective of leaders working with communities in the City of London to strengthen and advocate for values-led community work. We host both initiatives at The Social Change Nest. In the first round of The Imagine Fund, we distributed £12,500 to 10 community projects. We are now in the middle of distributing £50,000 worth of grants to another 22 projects, as part of the second round.
