We are delighted to announce that Dorset Council have awarded Activate a grant to support our ongoing innovative work of making the performing arts accessible to all. The Organisational Support Revenue Fund is available to cultural organisations based in Dorset and offers core revenue support to local community organisations that focus on reaching more people from across our communities and removing barriers to the arts.
Kate Wood, Executive and Artistic Director at Activate, said “We are hugely grateful for this funding and will ensure that the money will deliver meaningful artistic engagement and participation opportunities. We realise that a high number of arts organisations in Dorset applied for this funding and how much time and effort will have gone into the application process. I also want to acknowledge those organisations, who this time, have not been successful. We will make sure, that with the funding, we continue to connect people through the performing arts and ensure that the work of local creatives can reach the widest possible audiences.”
