A £23 million social impact investment fund offering loans between £150,000 and £1 million to help organisations in the arts, cultural and heritage sectors build resilience and deliver social outcomes. We are proud of the innovative work delivered in Leicester for all our communities, we have a thriving arts scene with galleries, artists’ studios, and multiple National Portfolio Organisations. Leicester City Council also support international theatre Curve, Phoenix digital arts centre and the young people’s arts charity Soft Touch Arts. It will give students an overview of the history and scale of the global cultural industries and how they intersect with politics, the economy, and ideas of the self and of community.
From contemporary artists projecting light against the rocks to locals studying traditional handicrafts, the spirit of the arts lives in this valley. Investees have been supported by the fund to deliver social impact at scale. For example, Titchfield Festival Theatre took a loan from the Arts Impact Fund in 2015 to embark on a renovation programme of its theatre space, a former warehouse dating back to the 1960s. The renovations included the installation of an energy-efficient heating system, a new roof and an array of interior refurbishments to make the theatre a more comfortable venue. Building on the success of the Arts Impact Fund and the Cultural Impact Development Fund, we want to support even more arts organisations with social aims to achieve sustainable growth and increase their impact. Through five years of running the Arts Impact Fund, we have found that social impact investment can help build resilient, innovative and sustainable creative organisations, and help organisations to grow and innovate faster.
