We are thrilled to announce that Gloucester City Council – along with partners including Gloucester Culture Trust (that’s us!), University of Gloucestershire, the NHS, Create Gloucestershire, Gloucester Cathedral and many others – has been awarded £1.49million for a three-year investment in the city’s heritage and arts activity and infrastructure.
Through this work, we aim to ensure that investment in arts and culture also has the biggest possible impact on local economies, jobs, education, community cohesion and health and wellbeing.
The Great Place Scheme is a joint initiative by the Heritage Lottery Fund and Arts Council England, using funds raised from the National Lottery.
Gloucester is one of 16 places across England that will collectively receive £20 million to put arts and culture at the heart of our communities.
