Find out more information on the Arts Council COVID-19 support fund here.
The Arts Council will be offering emergency funding to organisations and individuals affected by the COVID-19.
A total of £160 million will help protect arts organisations during quarantines, closures, lockdowns, and a lack of audiences.
£90 million will be available to NPOs (National Portfolio Organisations). They hope organisations will use this funding to reboot their creative work, but also understand it may be required to alleviate financial pressures on NPOs.
£50 million will be made available to organisations that are not in receipt of regular funding from the Arts Council. Organisations who have applied to National Lottery Project Grants are welcome to apply for this support.
£20 million is allocated to support artists, creative practitioners and freelancers, so they can better sustain themselves, and their work, in the coming months.
