funding for the arts

We do not provide direct funding to any arts organisations or practitioners.

More information on Arts funding:

The Arts in England are funded through a wide variety of sources, which include earned income, Government subsidy, private donations and business sponsorship. Funding the Arts in this way can be beneficial to artists and arts organisations, as relying on a single funding source can be risky. A variety of funding sources also gives greater artistic freedom and financial flexibility.
