NEWS – Culture Recovery Fund Round 2 Success

We are very happy to announce that NORCA & Sistema in Norwich will receive £62,500 of funding through 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 Fund. This money will help us to continue to move forward together with participants, artists, audiences and communities as lockdown restrictions begin to end.

We want to thank Arts Council England for their support, and DCMS and HM Treasury for these funds, along with all of you who have supported us over the last year.

“Everyone at NORCA & Sistema in Norwich are relieved and grateful for the funding we will receive from the Culture Recovery Fund. We have continued to work with children and young people throughout the last 7 months, further innovating our Sistema and curriculum music provision to meet the challenges of the pandemic, supporting our workforce as we can, and putting plans in place for when restrictions are relaxed. We are looking forward to progressing exciting plans for the next phase of Sistema in Norwich, and reconnecting with communities, participants and audiences, as we emerge from lockdown restrictions over the coming months.”

Marcus Patteson, Executive Director, NORCA & Sistema in Norwich Here for Culture is a movement that unites the public, government and cultural organisations in support of our fantastic cinemas, theatres, music venues, museums, galleries and heritage.
