Theatres, museums, galleries, music venues, and cinemas have been invited to apply for finance and grant funding to help support their recovery in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.
It comes after the Culture Recovery Fund was extended over the winter period so more arts, cultural and heritage businesses can “protect jobs and plan for the future”.
The scheme is split into six categories: the Emergency Resource Fund, aimed at organisations at “imminent risk of failure”, the Continuity Support Fund, to help secure the future of arts and cultural organisations who have previously been supported by the Culture Recovery Fund, the Emergency Grassroots Music Venues Fund, and the Grants, Repayable Finance and Capital Kickstart funds.
More information on each scheme can be found here.
Commenting on the fund, Culture Secretary Nadine Dorries said: “Culture is for everyone and should therefore be accessible to everyone, no matter who they are and where they’re from.
“Through unprecedented government financial support, the Culture Recovery Fund is supporting arts and cultural organisations so they can continue to bring culture to communities the length and breadth of the country, supporting jobs, boosting local economies and inspiring people.”
The latest round of the Culture Recovery Fund saw £107 million awarded to 925 organisations. It means the scheme has now supported more than 5,000 organisations with £1.2 billion of loans and grant funding.
The fund is administered by Arts Council England, the British Film Institute, and the National Lottery Heritage Fund. The deadline to claim funding through the Culture Recovery Fund is 11 January 2022.
