We want to bring great art and culture to everyone, everywhere across England.

Explore the work we do in your area

We achieve this by supporting projects and organisations through our National Portfolio of art organisations and Major Partner Museums, through our Strategic Funding that addresses gaps in provision, and through our rolling funding programme, Grants for the Arts, which is open to everyone. We aim to make sure that people throughout England have the chance to experience the wonderful work of the regional and national work we fund.

Our investment is split into five areas, North, Midlands, South East, London and South West and you can find out more about investment in your area using the links above.
