Don’t talk about the money, money

Chasing funding has often been a struggle, despite the many reasons and benefits for the work we do. Neil Beddow, Artistic Director, recalls stories from the past 35 years and the ongoing determination to secure resources, to deliver more and better.

Arts & Communities go ahead

acta has just heard that our bid to Arts Council England and Department of Communities & Local Government (DCLG), to extend the Get Together programme in Redcliffe and beyond, has been granted. Look out for initial community theatre projects from parents at Hannah More Primary, and with mums at Autism Independence.

The latest support secured from the Arts Council England Grants for the Arts programme for acta‘s touring community theatre projects has been for the new Malcolm X Elders’ show, touring Autumn 13. This follows support for the Goblin Silver show
