The arts and culture are major forces behind London's status as a world-class, vibrant and diverse city. London remains home to some of the world’s best known art and cultural organisations that enhance its reputation on an international stage. This is complemented by a broad range of small and independent organisations that work internationally, nationally, regionally and locally to provide great art and culture for everyone.
The London region covers the City of London, all 12 Inner London boroughs and 20 Outer London boroughs. London is home to 244 National Portfolio Organisations and two Major Partner Museums and includes one Bridge organisation and four National Youth Music Orchestras. Total investment in these programmes for 2015–18 stands at more than £450 million. We also invest in artists and art organisations in London through Grants for the Arts, our open access funding programme for art activities.
