OD/2406 Award of UKSPF grant to Community Alliance Broxbourne and East Herts to provide support and development regarding the Arts in East Herts showcase

At its meeting of 18th January 2023, Council approved the use of UKSPF funds to fund cultural activities grants. An allocation of up to £100,000 was subsequently set aside for development of a Arts Showcase.

At the same meeting, Council delegated decision-making on all cultural activities grants and contracts to the Head of Housing and Health acting in consultation with the Executive Member for Communities.

The aspiration is that the Arts in East Herts showcase becomes a self-funded annual event after the UKSPF-funded event in 2024/25. To this end, it has been identified that a group of individuals from cultural organisations and/or with particular expertise and interests regarding arts events be established to become the organisers of future events. Support, guidance and training to establish such as group is essential and Community Alliance have been identified to having the necessary skills, connections and background to carry out this work.
