Glasgow City Council Communities Fund

Glasgow City Council Communities fund announcement.

It’s been a year of uncertainty with Covid-19 taking over our lives, however, we have some cheering news from the In Cahootz team – our application to Glasgow City Council’s Communities Fund was successful and we now have support until 2023 to further develop our Creative Citizens project.  This means we can offer adults from Glasgow’s recovery communities a substantial programme of work using creative and imaginative activities.  We are also able to do this alongside more traditional training and skills development.

This has given us all a great boost and our Creative Citizens and arts workers are now planning a number of creative activities for the coming months and making some exciting plans for 2021.

We look forward to sharing these with our workmates, families, friends and Glasgow’s wider community next year.

Kate Black, Creative Director.

On behalf of the Directors & Trustees of In Cahootz, I would like to thank Glasgow City Council for their financial support to our Creative Citizens Project.

This award will transform our ability over the next 2 ½ years to provide the participants with much-needed stability; making a real difference to their lives and enabling them to re-connect with their families and local communities.  It also allows our arts team to respond not only creatively but also strategically to meet their needs as we believe that this will be critically important in delivering the best value and best use of public funds.

This is the first time In Cahootz has been funded by Glasgow City Council and over the coming months and years, we look forward to building a good working relationship with appropriate council departments to achieve our common goals of equality, diversity and inclusion.

Jane Davidson, MBE,

Chair In Cahootz
