Since March, arts and cultural venues have faced unprecedented challenges to our survival, brought about by the global pandemic. To ensure our building got the attention it needed, we drastically scaled back our capital (building) project. These plans are crucial to the long-term prospects of Jacksons Lane.
Our funders stood by us during this tough time, both large and small: Arts Council England, Haringey Council and others, have helped us plan for the future with a sense of hope. Encouraged by their commitment, new funders also came to the table.
Today, we are relieved to announce that we have received a £415,000 capital grant as part of the latest tranche of funds from Arts Council England’s Cultural Recovery Fund.
This money will help us to return some essential elements to the plan that improve our prospects of the future, support for artists and help us serve our communities better, internationally and locally.
Today’s announcement is welcome news, but our thoughts remain with the many cultural venues who have not been as fortunate this year.
