'more arts.' LEGACY FUND SUCCESS STORY
From our Legacy Fund (voluntary donations from our Local Arts Loan Programme) The Cultural Partnership funds projects to help vulnerable young people in the local area.
A project we are currently funding through Earley Town Council enables young people to develop their music and performance skills.
We have helped them purchase musical instruments and we've paid part of the costs of tuition, provided by Rock Academy Foundation. This is what Town Clerk Jo Shaw says about the project:
"The Rock Academy Foundation are working (together with the youth workers employed by Earley Town Council ) with 13 young people supporting their development as musicians and encouraging them to create new original music. This resulted in a band and a solo artist performing sets at the Rock Academy Christmas concert at Readipop on Monday 10th December 2018. 8 of these people have now successfully completed an Arts Award Discover qualification. The young people have developed as musicians, performers and/or composers, they have also developed their team working skills and gained confidence in their creative abilities. The event received positive feedback from community leaders, parents and the students themselves."
