Funding For Cambs Arts Groups

Seven organisations in Cambridgeshire are getting a share of millions of pounds of Arts Council funding over the next three years.

They are:

  • Academy of Ancient Music, Cambridge
  • The Britten Sinfonia, Cambridge
  • Hoipolloi Theatre Company, Cambridge
  • The Junction, Cambridge
  • Kettle's Yard Art Gallery, Cambridge
  • New International Encounter, Cambridge
  • Wysing Arts Centre, Bourne

 

However, hundreds of other arts organisations have lost their funding due to government cuts.

695 organisations have been succesful in funding applications, but another 605 have not been awarded any money.

Dame Liz Forgan, Chair of Arts Council England, said: "This is about a resilient future for the arts in England.

We have taken the brave path of strategic choices not salami slices which has meant some painful decisions, and it is with great regret that we have had to cease funding some good organisations.

But we will still be supporting excellence, exceptional talent and successful risk-taking; helping organisations to get their great work out far and wide; backing strong leadership and cultural entrepreneurialism; supporting resilient organisations that can thrive as well as survive; and encouraging work that really enthuses children and young people – because that’s where it all begins."
