We are delighted to announce that we have remained one of Arts Council England’s National Portfolio Organisations
For 2018-22 Bedford Creative Arts is pleased to announce it has been successful in retaining its NPO (National Portfolio Organisation) status with Arts Council England. This is a big achievement for the charity and means it will expect to receive an annual investment as part of the funding agreement with Arts Council England for a further four years from 2018-22. This will provide considerable support in the delivery of the growing artistic programme over that time.
Bedford Creative Arts joins 830 other NPO arts and cultural organisations in England that represent some of the best arts practice in the world, and play a vital role in helping Arts Council England to meet their mission of ‘Great Art and Culture for Everyone.’
“This gives us a strong footing over the next five years to deliver engaging, inspiring and extraordinary experiences through high quality new art in Bedfordshire and beyond. We aim to continue to build new participants and audiences, especially with those who have not necessarily engaged in cultural activity before” says Alan Dodd CEO, Bedford Creative Arts. “We are enormously grateful to all our funders and supporters who continue to support us year after year on so many projects.”
