Government Announces New Fund to Support Creative Projects in the Northern Powerhouse (Northern England)

The Government has announced a new £3 million Fund to support creative and cultural organisations across the Northern Powerhouse. The funding, which follows an Industrial Strategy sector deal for the creative industries earlier this year, will mean arts projects and enterprises which support their local communities, in areas including Cumbria, Manchester, Lancashire, Leeds, Liverpool, Sheffield and Yorkshire, can apply for £150,000 of government funding. This could include projects using theatre to improve child literacy or art workshops for disabled people or the elderly.
