Today we are feeling very grateful and relieved. SparkedEcho have been awarded emergency core funding from Arts Council England and Kent Community Foundation to see us through the Covid-19 emergency.
Janet Moore, Co-Director of SparkedEcho says:
"As a grassroots music organisation working with marginalised groups in Kent and Sussex, this emergency funding has been a lifeline to keep the lights on during a time when our outreach work and live events have been postponed. We would like to pass on a huge thank you to Kent Community Foundation and Arts Council England/National Lottery, for their vital support.
When the post-virus challenges become clearer, we believe the arts, with its power to reduce isolation and improve mental wellbeing will play a key role in the nation's recovery. And we will be ready to play our part."
