Stevenson Welcomes Funding for North-East Arts Group

An arts group in the North-East has been awarded a five-figure cash boost by the Big Lottery Fund to work with young people in the community.

The North East Arts Touring Limited has been given £61,000 after applying to Young Start for funding.

The group will work with young people aged between 13-24 to promote a professional theatre and dance performance within their local community.

It also aims to teach transferable skills in events and art management.

During the two-year project, 360 young people will take part, supported by 324 volunteers.

Commenting, Stewart Stevenson MSP, said:

“This funding will help support a new, two-year project aimed at showing young people the benefits of theatre.

“I am pleased the group has been successful in its funding and I look forward to seeing how the project develops over the next two years.

“Funding like this can be a lifeline for community groups and I would urge others to apply for the funding available.”
