At the start of January, we opened the application process for our national portfolio arts organisations and museums for 2015 to 2018. There is now less than a week to go before applications close.
Organisations will be welcomed into the portfolio for three years, although we will only be able to confirm levels of funding for 2015/16. Funding levels for 2016/17 and 17/18 will be subject to the grant-in-aid settlement we receive. For more on this, please see our overall investment plans for 2015-18.
Alan Davey, Chief Executive, Arts Council England said:
'Arts Council England is the champion of art and culture all over the country, so we use our funds intelligently to benefit a range of organisations and audiences: national or local, rural or urban, large and small. It's a job with great responsibility – using the money we have in the best way to ensure reach, maintain an ecology and infrastructure, working in partnership and looking at England overall.'
