We’re very pleased to be able to share this news from Culture Quest…
When the members of the Culture Music Appreciation Group had to face the reality that funding from Norfolk County Council was coming to an end, they formed an Unincorporated Association, elected a committee and wrote a constitution. This enabled them to win a grant from the Big Lottery for another 40 sessions at Norwich Arts Centre.
The group has met regularly at Norwich Art Centre since January 2016. Members of the group all live with mental ill health, and they find that sharing their interest and enjoyment of music helps them manage their mental health and reduce their isolation.
The group has appointed Dave Pullin, a musician who is also a mental health professional, to facilitate the sessions, and have designed a new logo. Culture Quest was originally set up and run by the Restoration Trust, a local charity that has supported the members to form their own independent association
