Support from the Cultural Recovery Fund is vital for arts organisations right now, as we are all facing increased costs against depleted revenue and continuing economic uncertainty.
While this funding will help ensure that The Art House can continue its important work for the people of Wakefield and some of the most marginalised artists in the sector, it is also important to stress that the conditions under which we wrote these applications has already worsened. There are thousands of arts professionals still facing or dealing with unemployment. Theatres are still closed.
We urge the government to work more closely with the sector to do everything in its power to protect this precious and valuable sector so that it can successfully weather this unprecedented period.
#HereForCulture is a movement that unites the public, government and cultural organisations in support of our fantastic cinemas, theatres, music venues, museums, galleries and heritage.
