Funding Alert: Dance Woking

Dance Woking is delighted to announce that it has received funding from Arts Council England to support us through this unprecedented and difficult time.

Dance Woking champions dance and is keen to continue to make a significant contribution to Woking’s future rich cultural offer. With the COVID-19 crisis impacting on everyday movement, challenging our physical and mental wellbeing we see that dance will be even more important in the future, to help rebuild the health and wellbeing of our communities. By receiving the continued confidence and support of Arts Council England (ACE) and Woking Borough Council (WBC), Dance Woking will be able to continue to be a relevant force in Woking, Surrey and the South East.

This grant. along with support from WBC, has given us the opportunity to be able to start planning and preparing for a new way of working, we will continue to work collaboratively with our partner organisations and gain insight into what might work for them now and in the future, we will continue to seek opportunities as they arise; we are excited to be thinking about what the cultural offer might look like in Woking Town Centre as the town continues to expand to residents in the next few years.

Dance Woking has an engaged board with new Trustees and a new chair joining the organisation in September 2019, this is therefore an ideal time for us to create a new flexible business plan that is fit for our time. We we will be actively engaging with our partners, funders and supporters as they will be key to our change process and plans.

For those who would like to know more and get involved we will be sharing details of how you can do this in the next few weeks.

Funding from Arts Council England was only made possible thanks to the #NationalLottery and its players, we would therefore like to thank the players for supporting the National Lottery
