It aims to sustain a thriving culture and leisure business encouraging innovation and expansion to maximise opportunities for the community. Magna Vitae is a Partner to East Lindsey District Council.
Arts Council England
Many areas of England provide few opportunities to attend and participate in the arts. They may be geographically isolated or suffer from a lack of local artists and arts organisations.
We believe that everyone has the right to experience and be inspired by the art, so we want to transform the opportunities open to people in these places.
As a membership organisation, the Coastal Communities Alliance (CCA) provides a shared network of support for local authorities and organisations across coastal areas of the UK which face socio-economic challenges.
As part of it’s vision, the CCA works with Opera for All to support the network of cultural provision in coastal areas, and plays an important role in identifying Opera for All’s areas of delivery and strategic partnership.
