Amazing news: we have received three-year funding from Arts Council England & a Change Maker 2016 award!

We are so pleased to let you know that we have secured three-year funding from Arts Council England for £150,000!arts-council-logo

The funding, from the Art Council England’s Catalyst Evolve fund, was created specifically to support smaller charities to develop and become stronger financially, to help create a more sustainable and resilient art and culture sector.

Through this grant, we will be able to expand our programmes and reach more participants and their communities. This will include expanding Stone FlowersHarmonise and Everyday People to other cities in the UK with a large refugee population, and developing an International Programme to help refugees residing in other areas of Europe better cope with their traumatic experiences through our unique music programmes.

We are also thrilledsouthbank-logo1 to have been awarded the Southbank Centre’s Change Makers Award 2016 at their Festival of Love in July, awarded to those who tirelessly dedicate their time and energy to projects that make a difference and transform people’s lives.

Thanks as ever to all our wonderful donors who allow us to carry out this vital work everyday.
