dBS Solutions receives lifeline grant from Government’s £1.57bn Culture Recovery Fund

From all the Team at dBS Solutions, we are thrilled and humbled to be one of the chosen organisations to receive a valuable part of the Culture Recovery Fund.  We would like to take this opportunity to thank  The Department for Digital, Media & Sport, HM Treasury and The Arts Council for this unbelievable opportunity.

dBS Solutions has been awarded £70,000 as part of the Government’s £1.57 billion Culture Recovery Fund to help face the challenges of the coronavirus pandemic and to ensure they have a sustainable future, the Culture Secretary has announced.

dBS Solutions is one of 1,385 cultural and creative organisations across the country receiving urgently needed support. £257 million of investment has been announced today as part of the very first round of the Culture Recovery Fund grants programme being administered by Arts Council England. Further rounds of funding in the cultural and heritage sector are due to be announced over the coming weeks.

dBS Solutions are proud to be receiving funding to enable a lifeline both mentally and educationally, to technicians in our industry who may feel like they have lost their feet with the current Pandemic. Our aim is to provide training and engagement to inject the thrill and passion back into our industry once more. dBS Solutions are committed to our less advantaged and younger generations to help them learn and explore the excitement of working in the Arts.

Culture Secretary Oliver Dowden said:

“This funding is a vital boost for the theatres, music venues, museums and cultural organisations that form the soul of our nation. It will protect these special places, save jobs and help the culture sector’s recovery.

“These places and projects are cultural beacons the length and breadth of the country. This unprecedented investment in the arts is proof this government is here for culture, with further support to come in the days and weeks ahead so that the culture sector can bounce back strongly.”

Chair, Arts Council England, Sir Nicholas Serota, said:

“Theatres, museums, galleries, dance companies and music venues bring joy to people and life to our cities, towns and villages. This life-changing funding will save thousands of cultural spaces loved by local communities and international audiences. Further funding is still to be announced and we are working hard to support our sector during these challenging times.”

#HereForCulture is a movement that unites the public, government and cultural organisations in support of our fantastic cinemas, theatres, music venues, museums, galleries and heritage.

We want people to make sure that where they are able to visit local culture venues in their communities, they do so in a covid secure way. Plus, with more and more culture being curated online, there is no better time to support and enjoy all the new and exciting ways culture is available to us.

By being #HereForCulture, we aren’t just supporting the people in the industry, we’re also supporting communities across the country.
