PACE Theatre Company Ltd is delighted to be named as a recipient of Creative Scotland’s Culture Organisations and Venues Recovery Fund, announced on 5 November 2020. The Paisley-based theatre company, which ran the largest youth theatre of its kind prior to the introduction of Covid restrictions, is due to receive an award of £75,000 to support the organisation’s work.
The £11.75million fund is being delivered by Creative Scotland, on behalf of the Scottish Government, to support a broad range of 203 organisations and venues across Scotland, including comedy, festivals, music, nightclubs, performing arts, publishing, visual arts and cultural infrastructure.
Grant Mason, Chief Executive, said of the announcement:
“We’ve been incredibly lucky to have the support of our members, alumni and local funders, during what have undoubtedly been challenging times. However, the impact of the restrictions we have faced over the last 8 months are still being keenly felt and this funding will go a long way to ensuring long-term stability for our organisation.
“We are incredibly grateful to have been selected by Creative Scotland to receive these funds, allowing us to continue to provide quality arts experiences for young people in Renfrewshire and beyond.”
