We are delighted to announce that we’ve secured 3-years funding from Arts Council England. The money will contribute to the running cost of City Arts, allowing us to continue our work with communities in Nottingham and Nottinghamshire. City Arts will be one of ACE’s regularly funded National Portfolio Organisations, giving the organisation to the security to commit to long term projects.

Our chair, Tim Challans, is quoted in the Nottingham Post’s report on the funding announcements:

“City Arts’ board and staff are delighted with the Arts Council’s decision to support us for the next three years. This will help City Arts continue its work with individuals and communities in Nottingham and to offer a wide range of people the opportunity to participate in a wide range of arts activities.

We are also pleased that the Arts Council continues to recognise that working with often vulnerable people and communities that do not normally get involved with the arts is an important component of the wide range of high quality and innovative arts provision in Nottingham, and that it has huge personal benefits for many people.”

Big congratulations to all our friends and partners, in Nottingham & beyond, whose funding was also renewed.
