Arts Council England
Imove’s current work is supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
Legacy Trust UK
Imove has been funded by Legacy Trust UK, an independent charity set up to create a lasting cultural and sporting legacy from the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games in communities across the UK.
The Trust was a Principal Funder of the Cultural Olympiad and its finale, the London 2012 Festival. The Trust then supported six key projects around the UK to expand on the ground-breaking work they delivered from 2008-12.
Stanza Stones was supported by Pennine Prospects who also helped us create a trail of new Wordstones along the Calder Valley.
The funding was being made available through the South Pennines LEADER programme (Rural Development Programme for England), which is jointly funded by Defra and the European Union, and managed by Pennine Prospects.

Orangebox has given a home to one of our Wordstones.
Orangebox is a brand new £3.9 million state of the art centre for young people. The centre has been designed by young people, for young people with facilities including: climbing wall, rooftop skate-park, recording studios, dedicated art room, rehearsal spaces and allotments alongside counselling and support services.
A myplace funded partnership led by Square Chapel Centre for the Arts, Orangebox is the destination for young people from Calderdale to seek support and guidance, pursue their creative interests, develop skills, try out new things and a welcoming place to spend time with friends.
Calderdale Council has supported both Wordstones and The Grand Departs.
The Mytholmroyd Wordstone has been placed at the Memorial Gardens and is one of a series of artworks featured in a new improvement programme to the Calderdale section of the Rochdale Canal.
The ‘Canal Connections’ programme is a £1m project designed to improve this stretch of canal and the the towpath between Redacre and Burnley Road.
