Coventry set to get a chunk of £20m arts pot after National Lottery funding

The arts and culture scene in Coventry is set to receive a massive financial boost after it was announced the city would receive a big chunk of cash.

The city is one of 16 places in England to benefit from a slice of £20m from the Great Place Scheme, a National Lottery-funded project which aims to help local arts groups boost education, jobs, health and more in their areas.

Other places which will receive parts of the funding include Walthamstow and Barnsley.

The local projects set to be funded will “explore new ways to include arts, culture and heritage in the provision of local education and health services,” said the Arts Council.

They will also “research the contribution made by arts, culture and heritage to local economies”.
