TEN projects will receive funding as part of the Open Call for Ideas for the Acton and Park Royal Creative Enterprise Zone (CEZ).

Open Call was developed by Old Oak and Park Royal Development Corporation in partnership with Ealing Council.

More than £150,000 of funds will help provide affordable community space and developing creative talent.

The successful projects represent the diversity of Acton and Park Royal, with 82% of the projects being run by minority ethnic, female, LGBTQIA and disabled-led organisations.
