Creative Quarter backs the Creative Industries Federation's call for a Cultural Renewal Fund

Wed 17th Jun 2020

by Creative Quarter

A report by the CIF highlights the urgent need for a Cultural Renewal Fund, by outlining the job losses and impact on turnover caused by the ongoing lockdown.

Work News

“The East Midlands’ creative industries have been growing much faster than the wider economy, but some parts of the sector face huge challenges right now. A Cultural Renewal Fund could be key to helping local cultural organisations in particular to keep on entertaining us as they do so fantastically in Nottingham, and to keep on contributing to the local economy by providing so many important jobs.”

“The Creative Quarter in the heart of Nottingham city centre has thrived in recent times, in large part thanks creative and cultural businesses based in the city. They have helped to make Hockley, the Lace Market and Sneinton Market great places to live, to work and to have fun. The arts and culture are also vital to the sense of community here and as we emerge from lockdown we need everyone, especially government, to be doing all we can to help them get going again as quickly as possible.”
