Community creative and cultural groups are good for our community, for wellbeing, but can be a real boost for wider social benefit and even in supporting the local economy. The Town Council is keen to support creative groups to get established and become sustainable. They realise that the availability and affordability of space may be a barrier to groups getting going, so a pilot project has been introduced to give support for the first sessions.
It applies to new groups or to those who have started up, but may be struggling to become established. These may be in danger of finishing unless they get some support at this time.
The fund is to provide 50% of the cost for a limited time. The “match” can come from the group or from a venue wishing to equal (or exceed) the council’s contribution.
This is not long term funding, just enough to make a difference. Probably the first few sessions.
If you are interested in us hosting your first few start-up community group sessions as part of Mossley Town Council’s Creative Spaces Fund opportunity, please fill in this form.
