NPO Funding Success!
Earlier this morning, we at Stanley Arts received spectacular news that we received National Portfolio Organisation status and funding. We’re beyond delighted to continue to showcase creative talent to South London and beyond. Working with such a diverse range of artists and community programmes is what we love best and we can’t wait to bring you more for the years to come!
On the other hand, in light of the announcement, we acknowledge that other creative organisations may have not been so lucky with the news. To these folks, we send our thoughts on what is a difficult and painful day.
Below, our Chair, Cameron commented:
“Stanley Arts is delighted to have received an offer of funding from Arts Council England for three years starting in 2023. This will make a huge difference in what we can do for culture and artists in Croydon and South London. While we are thrilled to be one of 276 new National Portfolio Organisations, we recognise that other arts organisations have missed out, and our hearts go out to them. Arts and culture are expressions of how we see ourselves and our place in the world; this funding will help us to hold up a mirror for years to come.” – Cameron McLeod, Chair, Stanley Arts
We featured on Arts Council England’s article ‘Ambitious Pioneers and Innovators,’ following the announcement. You can read it here: https://www.artscouncil.org.uk/news/bringing-creativity-and-culture-your-doorstep
