Declining local authority funding and a competitive funding environment makes improving the cultural offer at the Carnegie Theatre & Arts Centre even more difficult.
Trustees want to embark on an ambitious project to develop the Carnegie into a cultural community hub which extends the reach to those who the new Arts Council strategy wants to enrich their lives with direct access to cultural facilities which provide education and enjoyment for all.
With declining local authority funding it is becoming increasingly difficult to develop these far reaching projects let alone continue to offer the programme, community classes and educational programme (music centre) that the Carnegie does offer. Without funding it is likely the Carnegie will suffer the same as many other cultural venues like it – it will close.
Funding to allow the Carnegie to stretch its reach, understand what it needs to be and develop into that future ready cultural venue will lift up the town and borough
