NAWE to receive £42k from second round of the Government’s Culture Recovery Fund. > NAWE is among more than 2,700 recipients to benefit from the latest round of awards from the £1.57 billion Culture Recovery Fund > This award will help us provide more direct support for writers working in education and community settings and develop some exciting new programmes of work.

We are delighted to share the news that NAWE has received a grant of £42,000 from the Government’s £1.57 billion Culture Recovery Fund. 

More than £300 million has been awarded to thousands of cultural organisations across the country including NAWE in the latest round of support from the Culture Recovery Fund, the Culture Secretary has announced 

At a time when all cultural organisations are struggling, this grant means more direct support to writers and a sustainable future for the organisation.

Fiona Mason, NAWE’s Acting Director said: 

During the pandemic, NAWE has been working hard to support writers to tackle isolation and to meet the challenges of transitioning to new ways of working in community and education settings. This award means we can provide even more support, including a wellbeing toolkit for writers and the expansion of virtual networking events as part of a wider programme of activities. 

This will not only make a difference to writers but to the many thousands of people who they engage with through creative writing and expressive writing sessions. 

We’re hugely grateful to ACE and DCMS for this support, which will have a direct and positive impact on the sector.”

 

Sir Nicholas Serota, Chair, Arts Council England, said:

“Investing in a thriving cultural sector at the heart of communities is a vital part of helping the whole country to recover from the pandemic. These grants will help to re-open theatres, concert halls, and museums and will give artists and companies the opportunity to begin making new work.  

We are grateful to the Government for this support and for recognising the paramount importance of culture to our sense of belonging and identity as individuals and as a society.”
