Around Birmingham there are a couple of projects to back:
- The MAC are looking for just over £15m to cover building costs
- Birmingham Royal Ballet are after £800,000 for their staging of Cinderella
Actually, neither of these are very clear. Cinderella opened a few days back and is on until 12 December. The MAC seem to be after twice as much as The Big Give made as a whole last year, although you can’t fault the ambition.
Just to widen the net a little to the rest of the West Mids, Ironbridge, The Courtyard and Pentabus all have appeals. Of those with a national focus, Dance Umbrella and The Campaign for Drawing are looking for donations.
The MAC’s own website says they’re after £6k, not £15m.
