ARTS Apply now for Arts Council funding

Arts Council England (ACE) has announced its investment plans from 2015 to 2018. The overall budget for

national portfolio organ- isations and major partner museums is expected to be reduced by around 5 per cent, with applications for invest- ment to be submitted during a three-month window from early January 2014. As part of the plans, ACE

will set out a full range of its funding resources including those for arts organisations, museums, grants for the arts and strategic fund- ing programmes. This will enable those considering an application to make an informed decision as to whether this type of funding is right for them. “We will invest in organisations to thrive,” said Alan Davey, chief executive of ACE.

Te budget for major museums may be reduced by five per cent

“Some may even see funding upliſts and we will welcome new organisations in.” Organisations can join the funding pro-

gramme for three years, though ACE will only be able to confirm funding levels for 2015/16, with future funding subject to government grants. Details:
