The Arts Council announced today that Bristol Cultural Development Partnership(BCDP) has made a successful application under the new Catalyst investment programme.
Catalyst aims to help cultural organisations diversify their income streams and access more funding from private sources. The new programme is made up of investment from Arts Council England, Heritage Lottery Fund and the Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS).
BCDP applied under the ‘Catalyst Arts: Capacity Building and Match Funding’ scheme, which support organisations in building their fundraising capacity and capability over a three-year period. Funds raised will go into new arts projects for Bristol Festival of Ideas in addition to the 2014 ‘Twentieth Century Conflict and the Arts’ and 2016 ‘800 Years of Bristol’ programmes.
Andrew Kelly, Director of Bristol Cultural Development Partnership, said today:
‘BCDP has an excellent record of fundraising and partnership working for cultural projects in Bristol and the West of England over 15 years. We are delighted that, through the Catalyst programme, we now have the opportunity to extend this, encouraging long-term giving by individuals and organisations as well as creative projects with companies, trusts and foundations and others which will deliver high-quality cultural work for the city and encourage greater levels of giving in the future.’
