NEW DIORAMA AWARDED GRANT FROM THE THEATRES TRUST
New Diorama is delighted to have been awarded a grant from the London Theatres Small Grants Scheme for new office space for our supported community groups & artists.
New Diorama is already the home of many theatres companies but, after Associate Ensemble Idle Motion moved into the NDT office, we realised how important it was for our supported companies to have dedicated office space. This new space, which will come online in October 2016, will provide completely free, accessible, office space for up to six theatre companies and a place for community groups to meet and have trustee meetings.
This new expansion of our building and the services we offer would not have been possible without the Theatres Trust and their pioneering London Theatres Small Grants Scheme. There were four other recipents from this fund including Battersea Arts Centre and the Bush Theatre.
Mayor of London Boris Johnson has said of the scheme: "London's smaller theatres are vital to its pre-eminence as a cultural capital on the world stage. Dotted throughout our city they entertain Londoners and bring in visitors, contributing to the local economy. In addition, they are a fertile seedbed for the vibrant talent and creativity that also feeds into the major houses, as well as film and television. These awards will help ensure some of our key players can get on with their core business, which is to exciting work for the public to enjoy."
