Arts Council announces investment plans for 2015 to 2018

1st July 2014

Today (1 July) Arts Council England announces details of its investment plans for the next three years including its new national portfolio of arts organisations and museums representing a major public investment in England’s arts and culture.

These plans include:

A new National Portfolio of 670 arts organisations (NPOs) and 21 Major Partner Museums (MPMs). 46 arts organisations join the portfolio and 58 leave. 5 new museums are added to the portfolio ensuring a wider geographic spread.

The investment in NPOs for 2015/16 will be £339.5million, compared to £341.4m in 2014/15. The MPM budget has increased to £22.6 million in 2015/16 from £21.5 million; an increase of £1.1 million.

An increase to the Grants for the Arts budget to £70m in 2015/16, from £63m in 2014/15.

These increases will lead to a reduction in Strategic funds for the arts overall – a budget of £104m per annum from £153m in 2014/15.

This investment in NPOs and MPMs assumes standstill funding from Government in years 15/16 and 17/18.
