The grants will help us to continue to deliver our public engagement programme and Festival to explore and share Manchester’s past to create a fairer future for all.

The funding from GCMA has been awarded through the Spirit and Sustain strands of the Culture Fund, which are collectively designed to support important organisations in Greater Manchester’s cultural landscape and those with both local and international impact.

For the MCC Culture Fund grant, we are part of a dozen arts organisations that are set to share nearly £1 million in council grants over the next three years.

In all, £939,982 will be shared between Brighter Sound, the Castlefield Gallery, Community Arts North West, Contact theatre, Hope Mill Theatre and Manchester Histories. Also benefiting are Manchester Jazz Festival, Manchester Jewish Museum, Manchester Literature Festival, Odd Arts, Reform Radio, and Venture Arts.

We are over the moon to be part of both portfolios and to be able to work alongside such a host of brilliant cultural organisations across Greater Manchester.

Big thanks to both funders, we really appreciate the support.
