More than £100 million has been awarded to hundreds of cultural organisations across the country including the Bluecoat in the latest round of support from the Culture Recovery Fund, the Culture Secretary announced today.
The Bluecoat in Liverpool has been awarded a grant of £155,194 by Arts Council England.
The latest Cultural Recovery Fund grant will ensure that the Bluecoat can continue to open its doors, providing a vital creative resource to Liverpool. It will support the Bluecoat’s after school club programme, Out of the Blue, which provides creative sessions to children living in some of the most deprived areas of the city, as well as supporting Blue Room, a programme for learning disabled adults.
Artists will be supported in continuing to practise and, in addition, the funding will contribute to the building and organisation being fit for purpose – providing better access for resident artists, ensuring the building is covid safe, and contributing to the sustainability of the organisation through process improvements.
The third round of funding will support organisations from all corners of the sector as they deal with ongoing reopening challenges, ensuring they can thrive in better times ahead.
