ACE Catalyst Small Grants Success

Rosetta Arts are thrilled to have been awarded one of the ACE Catalyst Small Grants for our programme Creative Loyalty Ladders.

Sanaz Amidi, CEO of Rosetta Arts, said: “We at Rosetta Arts are absolutely delighted to have been awarded this ACE Catalyst Grant for our programme Creative Loyalty Ladders.  Following our acclaimed success in being appointed a new NPO from April 2018, this grant enables us to really drive our thriving organisation as a key resource for helping Newham Council to meet the social needs of their population, including in some of the poorest parts of East London.

Catalyst is a very practical award that will enable Rosetta Arts to strengthen its social impact and financial stability.  It means we can capture the value of contemporary technology to help us build and sustain significant partnerships with community leaders and with business and philanthropic partners. We aim to build high recognition among the more affluent supporter base, including a high profile event at The Gherkin, in partnership with company supporters Kirkland & Ellis.

No organisation can afford to rest on its laurels these days and Rosetta is no exception.   Catalyst funding means we will also be able to bring nationally recognised experts on marketing, branding, and fundraising to help us skill up to meet the challenges of the next four years.

Along with our other new projects, including a wonderful transnational programme across Europe, it is an exciting time to be involved with Rosetta – come and join us!”

Joyce Wilson, London Area Director, Arts Council England, said: “I am delighted to see this investment in Rosetta Art Centre’s plans for a more resilient future through our Catalyst Small Grants programme.

It is hugely important for London’s arts and cultural organisations to be able to be more sustainable, resilient and diversify their incomes. I am therefore thrilled that we are able to fund this excellent project in Newham through our Catalyst fund, and support their fundraising plans.”

We look forward to developing and strengthening our partnerships within the community, and continuing our mission to deliver quality visual arts to the areas which benefit most.
