|ID & Publication:||20140711011 ~ The-Villager.co.uk |
Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival is delighted to announce news received this morning from Arts Council England that it will continue to be part of the National Portfolio of organisations and will be funded up to 2018 in the current funding round.
The annual figure of £241,627 announced today represents a standstill on the Festival’s current level of core funding but has been welcomed by the hcmf// team as a huge vote of confidence in the local, national and international programme of work presented in Huddersfield each year in what is widely recognised as a difficult economic climate.
Artistic Director, Graham McKenzie says:
‘In what is clearly a challenging time for arts organisations across the country, this is great news for hcmf// – and testament to the hard work and commitment of our team, our Board and our partners. We now hope to hear that our many partner organisations in the UK will be similarly successful.’
hcmf// would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the team who have worked to put the bid together and Arts Council England for enabling the Festival to continue to create and present the most exciting new music from Britain, Europe and beyond in Huddersfield.
It’s also fitting to thank other funders and partners whose support is vital to making hcmf// a reality, including: Kirklees Council, the University of Huddersfield, the British Council, the PRS for Music Foundation.
hcmf// 2014- one of Europe’s leading annual celebrations of new music – takes place from Friday November 21 to Sunday, November 30. The internationally acclaimed British composer James Dillon, will be Composer in Residence.
