The Midlands is a place of creativity, industry and innovation, with a rich artistic and cultural heritage. The area is home to a mix of ambitious art and cultural organisations, from internationally acclaimed companies to grass roots organisations inspiring creativity in local communities.
Stretching across the country from Stoke-on-Trent to Northampton and Hereford to Skegness, the Midlands has 84 National Portfolio Organisations, four Major Partner Museums and two Bridge Organisations. The total investment in these programmes in 2015–18 stands at £184.4 million. We also invest in artists and art organisations in the Midlands through Grants for the Arts, our open access funding programme for art activities.
