Integr8 Dance in Winchester is pleased to have received a grant of £104, 656 from the Government’s £1.57 billion Culture Recovery Fund to help the organisation recover and reopen.
More than £300 million has been awarded to thousands of cultural organisations across the country including Integr8 Dance, in the latest round of support from the Culture Recovery Fund, the Culture Secretary announced today.
Integr8 Dance is thankful to have been awarded this grant which will go a long way to help them recover from the pandemic and get back to some kind of normality. The grant will allow the company to bring back their staff from furlough and provide much needed dance and drama activities in the south.
Over £800 million in grants and loans has already been awarded to support almost 3,800 cinemas, performance venues, museums, heritage sites and other cultural organisations dealing with the immediate challenges of the coronavirus pandemic.
The second round of awards made today will help organisations look ahead to the spring and summer months, and plan for reopening and recovery. After months of closures and cancellations to contain the virus and save lives, this funding will be a much-needed helping hand for organisations transitioning back to normal in the months ahead.
Culture Secretary, Oliver Dowden, said:
“Our record breaking Culture Recovery Fund has already helped thousands of culture and heritage organisations across the country survive the biggest crisis they’ve ever faced.
Now we’re staying by their side as they prepare to welcome the public back through their doors – helping our cultural gems plan for reopening and thrive in the better times ahead.”
Director, Charlie Sapey, said:
“We are so grateful to be recognised as one of 2700 organisations providing important creative and cultural opportunities in the UK. We know its been an incredibly tough time for all organisations in the arts and we are thankful for the government for recognising the importance of the arts. This grant will go a long way to securing the next stage of Integr8’s future and we are excited to bring our team back fully from furlough and provide many much needed arts activities over the next few months”
