Kala The Arts is an educational charity and based at Basingstoke College of Technology. The organisation has been developing the South Asian Arts (music and dance) in the Borough and supporting the Borough's BME and wider communities through its activities for several years. The regular activities are in the form of classes, participatory workshops led by professional artists, providing myraid of benefits to the local audiences, and participants.
The organisation has been encouraged to apply for funding by funding body on several occasions including this time and then refused the three year funding it applied for. Without Financial support Kala The Arts runs risk of closure, the financial support would help the organisation to sustain its regular activities, engage in community events through the year and nurture future talent. Without this the local people in the community are in danger of not seeing Asian Arts practises at all and losing their cultural inheritance.
We do not agree with the decision the council have made.
Please support us in our bid to get funding for Kala The Arts from Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council and help us in our endeavour to promote South Asian Arts in the region. Thank you very much
