We are incredibly pleased to announce that we have been awarded funding from Arts Council England and the government’s Culture Recovery Fund that means we can stay open, continue creating arts for all across our district and be #HereForCulture.
Our Connection In Isolation work during lockdown has shown how important connection is and the vital role that arts participation plays in all our lives at every level. The Horsebridge is also more than a space to participate, it also plays an increasingly important role in the local cultural economy providing a creative hub and opportunities to the many independent practitioners to teach, exhibit and sell with us.
We have worked hard to make our spaces Covid-secure, so do come and see the exhibition that shows our community response to lockdown and help us keep achieving our goal of Arts For All.
Culture creates jobs, supports livelihoods, and brings joy to everyone. The UK leads the world in the creative industries and we can all feel pride in that.
Now, in these challenging times, it’s our turn to show our support for culture. With an unprecedented investment through the £1.57bn Cultural Recovery Fund, the government is #HereForCulture so it can weather the storm of coronavirus and come back stronger.
And we are #HereForCulture too.
#HereForCulture is a movement that unites the public, government and cultural organisations in support of our fantastic cinemas, theatres, music venues, museums, arts centres, galleries and heritage.
We want people to make sure that where they are able to visit local culture venues in their communities, they do so in a covid secure way. Plus, with more and more culture being curated online, there is no better time to support and enjoy all the new and exciting ways culture is available to us.
By being #HereForCulture, we aren’t just supporting the people in the industry, we’re also supporting communities across the country.
