Eden Arts CA11
Eden District Council plans to cut its funding for Eden Arts from £43k to just under £14k from 2011 to 2014 - an almost 70 percent funding cut.
Eden Arts promotes, supports, develops and advises on arts and cultural activity in the area. Among its activities is promoting artists’ residencies in schools, community homes, hospitals, day centres and with community groups.
It also provides grants and guarantees to local promoters for events, exhibitions, training bursaries and a variety of different arts projects in the community and in schools, as well as supporting North Pennine Highlights, a rural touring programme which brings theatre, dance and music events to village halls throughout Eden, South Lakeland, Teesdale, Weardale and Tynedale.
As well as Eden District Council, Eden Arts receives funding from Cumbria County Council and the North West office of Arts Council England.
