Norwich Culture Quest Receives Lottery Funding

We are really pleased to announce that we are in receipt of a grant from the Community Fund of the National Lottery.

When the members of the Norwich 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.

In celebration of this Norwich member Simon designed a new logo for the group.

 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.

Anna Mudeka. The Mbira and African music.

We were very grateful to Anna who did our guest musician session yesterday. She demonstrated the Mbira and sang and played songs from Zimbabwe. It was a great experience to hear the instrument and Anna’s voice acoustically and promoted interesting discussion about the radically different approach to music in African cultures.
