Arts Council England launched

Classification - Funding

From 17/02/03, the former Arts Council of England and the former Regional Arts Boards of England will be known collectively as Arts Council England. As England's national development agency for the arts, ACE will invest 2 billion of funding (including National Lottery funding) into the arts between 2003 and 2006.

Increasing funding for cultural diversity projects, introducing young people to professional arts activities in schools through the Creative Partnerships scheme and strengthening and broadening resources for the arts are all key priorities for the agency.

There are opportunities for artists in Wales to apply for funding support from Arts Council England through collaboration with English based organisations. Support is also considered for touring events in Wales and across the UK. There are no deadlines for the coming year's funding schemes under the categories of grants for individuals, organisations and national touring. For further information, including an application pack, contact ACE direct.
