RAD Supports #HereforCulture
Culture creates jobs, supports livelihoods, and brings joy to everyone and the UK leads the world in the creative industries.
Now, in these challenging times, the government made an unprecedented investment through the £1.57bn Cultural Recovery Fund, and from which the RAD received a lifeline grant of over £600,000, so that we can weather the storm of coronavirus and come back stronger.
With more and more cultural content being curated online; this week, the RAD is supporting the #HereforCulture campaign by placing a spotlight on our RAD@Home initiatives and by recognising and sharing the work that RAD teachers have done all over the country and indeed the world, to connect their students and communities through dance, digitally.
We are also taking this opportunity to launch a fun and interactive idea – a Dancing Feet Competition where participants are encouraged to show us their sharpest footwork.
