Fundraising

Fundraising for Arts in Redditch - how you can help

As a Charity, our main sources of income are membership fees, and sales commissions generated by our various displays and exhibitions. This income was severely reduced during 2020 and 2021, so we put in place other arrangements in an effort to raise funds.

If you would like to help raise funds, simply click on the appropriate button  below the logo

to register.

All funds raised remain in the local community.

POP-UP GALLERY SUCCESS

During our recent Pop-Up Gallery, we received 1841 visitors (yes, we do count them!), and between them, they purchased over £5,000 worth of original art from local artists. Commission from these sales helps to fund our charity so a big 'thank you' to everyone who came to see us. The next Pop-Up Gallery will open on Thursday, 24th November.

Reimagine Redditch

 

Redditch is set to receive £852,00 of Arts Council England funding as part of its Creative People and Place programme 2022-2025.

 

The ‘Reimagine Redditch’ consortium, which comprises Bromsgrove & Redditch Network (B.A.R.N), Redditch Borough Council, Arts in Redditch, Severn Arts and Jestaminute Community Theatre, submitted its funding application last June, after the previous programme had been suspended due to the pandemic.

Redditch is one of only eight towns in the West Midlands to receive funding in a highly competitive process, and is one of eleven nationally to receive first time funding from a pot of £23.9m.

Peter Knott, Midlands Area Director, Arts Council England said: “Arts, culture and creativity make the places we live vibrant, exciting and inspiring, benefiting our wellbeing and helping to boost local economies. We are pleased to welcome Redditch to our Creative People and Places programme. This National Lottery investment will support the team to achieve their vision for arts and culture in Worcestershire and ensure more people in Redditch can experience, connect with and take part in creativity in their communities.”

Commenting on this recent announcement, Gary Roskell, Chief Executive of B.A.R.N, declared: “this funding will give local communities in Redditch new opportunities to engage in a whole host of creative activities, which they will help to design & deliver. The programme, with its initial funding and the support of local partners, will provide the foundations for a long-term approach which ensures that creativity is embedded in the life of the town, reflecting the town’s industrial heritage.”

The Council’s portfolio holder for Leisure, Cllr Joanne Beecham, said: “Reimagine Redditch is a three-year participation campaign which now has the funding to make even more creative activities happen, in partnership with communities, starting next year. It provides a blank canvass for our residents to get creative and to help Redditch bounce back from Covid, and we were delighted to play our part in the process which has led to this successful outcome”

Philip Roberts, Trustee of Arts in Redditch, summed up their role: “the aims of the Creative People & Places programme closely match those of Arts in Redditch, so it’s great that this funding will help to realise those aims.”
