Arts Council NPO funding in Leicestershire

Yesterday the Arts Council announced the organisations who have received 3 year funding as part of their National Portfolio from April 2012. There are 9 receiving funding in Leicestershire: Charnwood Arts, Darbar Arts Culture Heritage Trust, Leicester Print Workshop, Leicester Theatre Trust (Curve), Mantle Arts, Phoenix Arts (Phoenix Square), Richard Attenborough Centre (Embrace Arts), Soft Touch Arts and The Spark Childrens Arts Festival. Leicestershire & Rutland will also benefit from successful regional bids by Nottinghamshire County Council for rural touring (for the Centre Stage programme in Leics/Rutland) and by Dance 4 for dance development work. The Mighty Creatives who are based in Leicester will be a 'Bridge Delivery Organisation' to deliver work with children and young people (rather than civil engineering work presumbly) in the East Mids. And finally the Foundation for Community Dance, also based in Leicester, received funding to work nationally.
