More Music celebrate funding success.
More Music has been successful in its application for Arts Council National Portfolio funding from 2018 to 2022. The news was announced today (27 June 2017). The funding will benefit all of More Music's work, including its on-going commitment to creating inclusive music making opportunities and high quality arts events in Morecambe where they are based.
More Music is a music and education charity based at the Hothouse in Morecambe, with 24 years experience of delivering workshops, training, performances and festivals across the district, region and beyond. They also organised this weekend’s Catch the Wind Kite Festival in Morecambe. More Music seeks to build confidence and spirit in individuals and communities through the arts, especially music.
The NPO (National Portfolio Organisation) funding amounts to £105 000 per year for four years, which is a significant contribution to the organisation's funding, which is made up of earned income, sponsorship and public grants.
More Music's Creative Director and founder Pete Moser said:
"We are thrilled to have been successful in our NPO bid and what it means, which is to give us a greater ability to develop and provide in artistic and cultural experiences that enrich people's lives 'great art and culture for everyone', in line with the Arts Council's overall strategy. This will help support our key aims to use the arts to develop pride and confidence in communities, including our local community of Morecambe."
