It will benefit communities across the Black Country, enabling more people to experience and participate in high quality creative and cultural activities where they live, while also laying the groundwork, building on the longer-term ambitions set out in the Arts Council’s 10-year strategy, Let’s Create.

As well as renewing support for those organisations that have done so much to build England's reputation as one of the most creative countries in the world, Arts Council England are investing in five new organisations in the Black Country, that will help find and nurture the next generation of talent. Peter Knott, Area Director, Arts Council England said:

“We’re delighted to unveil our ambitious new portfolio reaching more people in more places across the Black Country than ever before.

“The Arts Council is investing more money outside London, and we’re introducing five new organisations locally.

“The Black Country already boasts a vibrant cultural scene with an international reputation for excellence and we look forward to supporting more opportunities for even more communities across the region to experience creativity on their doorsteps.”
