Draperstown’s Cornstore Creative Hub has been awarded £50,000 by Stormont’s culture department.
The Cornstore Creative Hub which is part of the famous Glasgowbury Music Group will receive £30,000 for a community transport minibus and £20,000 for programming.
Culture Minister Carál Ní Chuilín who visited the hugely successful social enterprise this week, said the funding was part of an overall investment in the North West of more than £4million in the current financial year.
“This additional investment will help to embed a lasting legacy of the 2013 City of Culture year by providing community organisations with equipment to allow them to enhance their existing provision, and help them to make a real difference to people’s lives,” said the minister.
“This is part of my continuing commitment to ensuring that the wider North West benefits from additional investment which will help to extend the networks, learning and momentum established during 2013.”
