East London Dance secures fundraising boost

We are delighted to share that East London Dance has been successful in its bid for a Catalyst Evolve award from Arts Council England.

This strategic fund, £140k in total over three years, will match the private funds we secure between now and August 2019, allowing our fundraising achievements to go that much further.

“East London Dance is located at the heart of one of the greatest regeneration projects of our time. The pace of change in Stratford and the wider East London area is exponential with a rapidly expanding cultural offer, radical shift in population demographics, and vast investment in infrastructure. This grant will help East London Dance grow our network of supporters and further diversify our income base in order to stay relevant and competitive in this fast changing environment.

This will be underpinned by, and enable us to achieve, an ambitious, high-quality and innovative artistic vision that reaches some of the most disengaged communities, champions and nurtures diverse new talent, and engages audiences through awe-inspiring performances and events.”
