Culture Fund Award to RPA
Swindon’s RPA, is one of 925 organisations receiving a share of more than £100 million awarded to cultural organisations across the country.

The support comes from the third round of funding announced by the culture secretary Nadine Dorries on Friday November 19.

Fi Da Silva Adams, said: “We’re thrilled and humbled to get this funding. Getting this money allows us to continue supporting young people who’ve had such a terrible time in the last couple of years.

‘The performing arts is a vital part of our society and culture. And for our young people it allows them to express themselves through drama, singing and dance in a safe and happy environment.

Arts for all

Nadine Dorries said: ‘Culture is for everyone and should be accessible to everyone, no matter who they are and where they’re from.

‘Through unprecedented government financial support, the culture recovery fund is supporting arts and cultural organisations. With this support they can continue bringing culture to communities up and down the country. In so doing, such organisations support jobs, boost local economies and inspire people.’

The fund has already awarded over £1.2 billion to date, supporting around 5,000 individual organisations and sites across the country. They range from local museums to West End theatres and everything inbetweeen. Not forgetting organisations in the cultural and heritage supply chains.

Darren Henley, CE of Arts Council England, said: ‘This continued government investment means our cultural spaces can carry on playing their part in bringing visitors back to our high streets. And thus they help to drive economic growth, boosting community pride and promoting good health.

‘It’s a massive vote of confidence in the role our cultural organisations play in helping us all to lead happier lives.’

Revolution Performing Arts came into being in 2007. All the teachers are DBS checked, trained in first aid and safeguarding protocols.

RPA specialises in empowering young people to celebrate their individuality through the power of performing arts.
