To enable to Cabinet Member to authorise the Executive Director to accept an offer from Arts Council England of a grant award of £780,000 towards the delivery of Derbyshire Makes –The Derbyshire Festival of Making.
That the Cabinet Member accepts the grant offer from Arts Council England of a grant award of £780,000 from Arts Council England towards the delivery of Derbyshire Makes –The Derbyshire Festival of Making.
Derbyshire Makes is the core project of the Derbyshire Cultural Framework and will help secure a more connected, resilient creative and cultural sector to the benefit of the wider Derbyshire economy.
Option 1: Not to accept the grant award. This would mean that the Derbyshire Makes project would not be able to proceed and that the objective to use the CuReF as ‘clean match’ would not be achieved. This would also mean that a Council Plan key action could not be delivered.
Option 2: Access other funding streams. There are no other open funding streams of this scale suitable for delivery of the Cultural Framework.
