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.

Reimagine Redditch

Programme Director Starts work

Reimagine Redditch has announced that its Programme Director, Dr. Richard Bromhall, has taken up his post.  Richard was, until recently, a producer at Coventry City of Culture, where he co-created a cultural programme that reflected the city’s diverse population and cultures. 

He has also worked with community arts organisation Friction Arts in Birmingham, delivering operations and creative programmes, as well as producing Nottingham UNESCO City of Literature’s writing development programmes before and during the pandemic. Richard holds a PhD in English Literature, and his research now develops models of best practice for engaging communities in culture.

Richard is a born and bred Brummie who’s proud to have grown up with Redditch family. He will work with Reimagine Redditch’s consortium and people from across the Borough until March 2025.

Reflecting on his recent appointment, Richard said: “I’m thrilled to have been appointed Reimagine Redditch’s Programme Director. I love Redditch; my fondest memories from childhood are of walking around Arrow Valley Country Park on Sunday afternoons with my family. This programme provides a genuine opportunity for local people and organisations to create, and participate in, projects that they’re passionate about. I’m very excited to work with communities across Redditch over the next two and a half years to shape this programme. 

“Culture is essentially about expressing yourself and what you care about - whoever you are and wherever you’re from. I can’t wait to check out the creative talent around the Borough and to help spark new ideas about how we can all make the most of Redditch’s rich and diverse culture.

“We want everyone in Redditch to get involved and know what’s going on. Sign up to our mailing list and you’ll be a part of it from day one.”

Richard will lead Reimagine Redditch through its exciting first chapter, working with the cultural and voluntary sectors and the wider community to develop new creative spaces for artists, supporters, and audiences to be a part of. As part of the role, he will underline and develop Redditch’s reputation as a place with a rich culture, showcasing the great creativity of local people and what the borough has to offer. 

Jan Higgitt, Chair of Reimagine Redditch, said “We are delighted to welcome Richard as the leader of our team. He brings to the role a depth of experience in promoting community-led arts programmes, combined with a passion for a range of creative forms”.
