Artcity: five years of arts funding for Stoke-on-Trent
We are delighted to announce a new £500,000 grant to arts organisations in Stoke to develop Artcity: a five-year programme which turns vacant buildings and disused spaces in the city into theatres, galleries, studios and cinemas.
B Arts, a participatory arts organisation based in North Staffordshire, developed the programme for Artcity with a partnership of local independent arts organisations: Airspace Gallery, The Cultural Sisters, Letting In The Light, Partners In Creative Learning and Re:Stoke. Between them they represent artists working in visual art, craft and textiles, film and video, music, dance and theatre.Find out more
