Arts Council England funding

Parndon Mill is thrilled to be a recipient of public funding by Arts Council England.

We are thrilled to announce that in March 2020, Parndon Mill successfully applied for funding from Arts Council England. We are very excited that Parndon Mill has been recognised as a hub of creativity that is worth preserving and developing! This is incredibly encouraging for the management, the trustees and everyone who is a part of our creative community.

These funds are essential for ensuring that we can continue to build on the past fifty years of amazing work by Parndon Mill’s dedicated founders.

With these funds, we will be able to work with partners to develop plans that will ensure a sustainable future for Parndon Mill. Harlow is rapidly expanding and we need to have the capability to offer even more arts engagement to our growing community, both through site development and an expansion of our arts programme. We are also keen to offer creative experiences to a much wider audience by working with partners to establish schemes that will increase affordable access to our classes and exhibitions. We have many plans, both in the short and long term! This grant will allow us to collaborate with experts to ensure that our ideas are robust and efficiently implemented for the benefit of everyone.

In the interests of public health and safety in these unprecedented times, Parndon Mill is currently closed. Our 3700 + annual student engagements are on hold so we are busy working on little videos of some of the creative activities to share with all in the meantime. We hope to be opening a You Tube channel in the near future and will shout out as soon as this goes live. We’re very good at close working and sharing hands on skills so, please bear with us as we get to grips with the art of video – it’s going to be a challenge!
