Introducing MakoDigital Arts CIC
It’s been a while in the making, but 2017 see’s the official launch of MakoDigital Arts CIC.
What is a CIC?
A CIC or community interest company is a type of company introduced by the government in 2005 under the Companies Act in 2004, designed for social enterprises that want to use their profits and assets for the public good.
So basically, a CIC is a not-for-profit organisation that’s goals are to benefit the community.
Why set up MakoDigital Arts CIC?
MakoEducation, along with the other ‘Mako’ subsidiaries, is part of a business ‘Partnership’ and because of this, it puts several barriers up in terms of the funding it can apply for – So, in order for us to be able to deliver the sort of fun, engaging and informative workshops that MakoEducation deliver’s, we have set up MakoDigital Arts CIC.
It’s no secret that funding for local community projects across the UK is drying up. So, in order for us to be able to work with as many people as possible in our local community, we felt it would be beneficial for us to set up a CIC to run parallel to MakoEducation.
This all means that MakoDigital Arts CIC can now apply to lots of lovely organisations who might be able to fund us to deliver fantastic art and technology based workshops to people who can really benefit from them… FOR FREE! HURRAH!!
