Community music charity More Music has been successful in its application for Arts Council National Portfolio funding from 2015 to 2018, announced today (1 July). 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.
The NPO (National Portfolio Organisation) funding amounts to £105,609 per year for three years, which is a significant contribution to the organisation's funding, which is made up of earned income and public grants. More Music is a music and education charity based at the Hothouse in Morecambe, with 21 years experience of delivering workshops, training, performances and festivals across the district, region and beyond. More Music seeks to build confidence and spirit in individuals and communities through the arts, especially music.
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 provide '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."
