Bounce is grateful to have received emergency support from Arts Council England. Thanks to National Lottery players, we are able to continue Story Club. Born in lockdown, Story Club is a weekly magazine blending creative writing, drama, play and visual art activities together. Each week is themed to inspire children to find new ways to play and make.
Arts Council Funding will allow us to continue to produce the project until the Autumn.
We will keep seven people in work whilst also investigating ways to engage digitally and in person. Story Club is also distributed in paper form to food banks, charities and schools supporting families without digital access.
Louise Pendry, director of Bounce Theatre said, “We feel so fortunate to have received this funding. It will ensure we have time to realign our plans in light of Covid-19. We are also able to extend our freelancers contracts whilst also developing a project we are all so proud of.”
