£3 million investment for creative organisations across the North
The Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport has today announced more than £3 million will be invested to support creative and cultural organisations across the Northern Powerhouse.
Sheffield-based social enterprise Key Fund has been selected to distribute the Northern Cultural Regeneration Fund to creative organisations that provide a meaningful social impact in their local communities.
Groups will be eligible for grants or loans of up to £150,000. This could include using music sessions for young people not in education or craft workshops with former prisoners.
The social investment fund is open to non-profit creative, arts and cultural organisations. Although it will not launch until April 2019 Key Fund is keen to start conversations with interested applicants as soon as possible.
