01 Jul Good News!
Mimbre are incredibly proud to have been offered continued support by Arts Council England as a National Portfolio Organisation. We’ve got plans for bigger, more exciting and more innovative acrobatic theatre and the support and recognition of ACE will help us to achieve that. In the coming years you will see us performing in flats and houses, circus tents, warehouses and on street corners and you will also have increasing opportunities to see the great skill and dedication of our youth groups from housing estates in Hackney. We want to thank Arts Council England in the face of incredibly difficult decisions. The cuts that have unfortunately had to be announced today are part of a suite of measures by our government that are doing nothing but making our society more unequal and our lives less bright. We hope to use our funding to reach beyond social, financial and cultural boundaries, to go some way towards bringing in some light.
We are pleased to see so many other circus and outdoor arts organisations have also received funding. We feel this is an exciting time for the sector and this recognition from Arts Council England will help us all capitalise on recent successes to increase the reputation, visibility and impact of the work we all do.
In particular we would like to congratulate our friends, peers and partners who have also received funding including Upswing, Ockham’s Razor, Jacksons Lane, Emergency Exit Arts, Nutkhut, The Greenwich Dance and Trinity Laban Partnership, National Centre for Circus Arts, Wired Aerial and many others.
