A community arts project supporting individuals and organisations across the borough is set to benefit from almost three-quarters of a million pounds worth of funding.

Creative Barking and Dagenham will receive £735,000 from Arts Council England over the next three years, through the latest round of its Creative People and Places programme.

The project will use the money to produce a wide range of initiatives including a summer and winter festival programme, artist residencies and ticket offers for shows across the capital, much to the delight of Creative Barking and Dagenham’s programme director Miriam Nelken.

“We’re really looking forward to building on our track record of local residents making decisions about the creative activity they want to see in the borough,” she said.

“Over the next three years we’ll be developing more opportunities for people to get involved in and benefit from great arts and cultural events and projects in Barking and Dagenham.”
