Projects marking the centenary of the First World War or events forming part of Big Dance 2014 are in with a chance of council funding.
Redbridge Council is encouraging people to be creative as the third round of its 2013-2014 Arts Grant funding opens.
The money supports the development and promotion of art and cultural activities in the borough.
Events marking the centenary of the 1914-18 conflict or linking in with Big Dance are particularly encouraged by the local authority.
Big Dance is for all ages and takes place from July 5 to 16.
The maximum grant is £3,000 and the council will fund up to 60 per cent of total costs.
Other income sources such as ticket/refreshment sales, sponsorship, funding and grants must be sought in addition.
