#Here for Culture – Intelligent Lighting awarded grant from the second round of the Government’s Culture Recovery Fund.

Intelligent Lighting Services Limited are to be awarded a grant from the second round of the Government’s Culture Recovery Fund.

We are 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 will enable us to transition through the current climate and adapt to new workflows until our industry resumes normality. Our continued survival will allow us to continue promoting British Culture throughout the UK as well as internationally.
We’re excited to get back to what we love doing and in the process be able to offer future contract opportunities to freelance industry colleagues and other creative supply chain companies. – Playing our part in supporting the wider economy of our industry is key to ensuring a resilient resurrection of our industry which is made up of world leading Artists, Designers and Technicians amongst many other disciplines.

 

Andrew Rosindell M.P. said:

I am delighted to have been able to play a small part in helping a local business in Romford get through these enormously challenging times.

The grant provided by the Government will allow Intelligent Lighting to continue championing British culture throughout our great nation and around the world.

 

Culture Secretary, Oliver Dowden, said:

“Our record breaking Culture Recovery Fund has already helped thousands of culture and heritage organisations across the country survive the biggest crisis they’ve ever faced.

Now we’re staying by their side as they prepare to welcome the public back through their doors – helping our cultural gems plan for reopening and thrive in the better times ahead.

 

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.”

The funding awarded today is from a £400 million pot which was held back last year to ensure the Culture Recovery Fund could continue to help organisations in need as the public health picture changed. The funding has been awarded by Arts Council England, as well as Historic England and National Lottery Heritage Fund and the British Film Institute.
