Eastleigh's The Point theatre has received combined grants totalling £270,000 from Arts Council England and the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation to further its work supporting artists and engaging with new audiences:
Over the next three years, The Point, in conjunction with its Creation Space, will fund Making Space, a project that will cover four main strands: To Create, To Learn, To Connect, and To Disseminate. In each of these areas, The Point’s creative team will work on developing the cultural offer of the region. This will include supporting new commissions and residencies; building on the venue’s existing Associate Artist programme; developing its digital platform; and disseminating best practice.
