'a space' receives vital grant from the Culture Recovery Fund

We are thrilled to announce that we have been awarded £216,000 from the government’s Culture Recovery Fund. This money will enable ‘a space’ arts to plan ahead, and to continue delivering our artist development programmes.

Director Daniel Crow said: “It’s fantastic news. Thank you to the Arts Council and DCMS. It feels like an opportunity now to stabilise, reset and plan ahead. Following a really challenging year of closing venues we can now continue our core work of supporting Southampton’s visual artists as well as looking ahead to reopening God’s House Tower next year.”

‘a space’ arts is one of 1,385 cultural and creative organisations across the country receiving urgently needed support. £257 million of investment has been announced today as part of the first round of the Culture Recovery Fund grants programme being administered by Arts Council England. Further rounds of funding in the cultural and heritage sector are due to be announced over the coming weeks.
