17 Glasgow projects to be supported by £6m of ‘shared prosperity’ funding

ONE of Glasgow’s best-known art galleries has been named among 17 recipients of almost £6m of funding, from the UK Government’s ‘Levelling up’ programme.

Says the city’s local authority, here, the Centre for Contemporary Arts will receive £585,842, to “deliver five strands of community engagement and enrichment across Glasgow, promoting social cohesion and inclusion through art and culture that is coproduced by local people”.

The £6m is from what’s known as ‘shared prosperity funding’ (here), operated by the UK Government in a bid to boost communities across the country.

Each of the recipients has been allocated more than £200,000.
