Almost £6m is to be spent on turning disused buildings in Nottingham into a creative hub.
Nottingham City Council has been awarded £3.74m from the European Regional Development Fund to regenerate a site in Dakeyne Street, Sneinton.
The authority will provide a further £2.25m to turn the area into workshops, offices and studio units.
Leader of the Labour-run authority, Jon Collins, said the plan would compliment the Sneinton Market redevelopment.
"As part of the city's emerging creative quarter, these facilities will play a significant role in... creating good quality jobs for local people," Mr Collins said.
It is not yet known when work will start on the project.
