QUAD in Derby received the positive news today of an award of £245,000 from the Arts Council England Culture Recovery Fund.  QUAD plays a crucial role as a cultural hub for

Derby, the funding means we can continue to serve our audiences offering a full programme of art and film, as well as online content and workshops for those who are not able to access the venue at the moment.

Adam Buss, QUAD CEO, said

“During these difficult times the importance of the arts has been reinforced both locally and nationally and whilst the pandemic has had a catastrophic effect on the finances of many organisations, Arts Council England have done all they can to ensure our future is bright. This funding once again highlights the strength of the arts sector in Derby and the power of collaboration and partnership to provide inspiring cultural activity even the toughest of times.”

Brian Walsh OBE, QUAD Chair,  added

“QUAD is committed to working with and serving our community however we can. That has been incredibly hard during these times but through the hard work and diligence of the team at QUAD we have ensured a vibrant programme that has accessibility and diversity at its core. This funding is a reflection of the strength of activity we are delivering now and that we plan to deliver in the future, once again working closely with the audiences we serve.”
