Culture Grants Awarded to District Creatives & Communities

Posted in Industry

Sixteen Culture Grants, ranging from £1,000 to £15,000, have been awarded to Wakefield district’s artists, cultural and heritage organisations, and community groups.

Recipients from the first round of funding include:

  • Wakefield Music Collective for their 30th annual Clarence Park Festival with the return of the two-day free festival with two stages, 22 bands and a DJ in the evening.
  • The Cluntergate Community Centre will be working with Yorkshire Arts to develop a large collaborative community mosaic. This will be permanently displayed at the centre and will be developed and made with the community groups that use the centre as well as with a local primary school.
  • Apple Tree Community Group will be developing an innovative project, ‘Women Together’, that will create local networks of women in Agbrigg, Portobello, and Eastmoor to share in activities.
