Kala Sangam has been awarded £267,136 for essential refurbishment work to St Peter’s House, its base/arts facility in central Bradford. These works will increase Kala Sangam’s trading income, reduce energy costs and improve the company’s overall sustainability and resilience.
Michelle Dickson, Director North, Arts Council England said, “Kala Sangam’s refurbished space in the heart of Bradford will enable it to develop partnerships with other organisations in promoting South Asian and intercultural arts and to bring together diverse artists and audiences while increasing the quality of audience experience. I’m pleased that we have awarded funding to this project and look forward to seeing how Kala Sangam’s work develops.”
Ajit Singh, CEO Kala Sangam said, “ We are delighted to have been successful with our capital grant and are grateful to the Arts Council of England and the Lottery. This significant grant will allow for us to continue growing our income through the use of the building but also save costs with the environmental sustainability works to make our building more attractive to the creative as well as commercial sectors”.
