Level Secures Three year Arts Council England funding

We’re delighted to have retained our National Portfolio Organisation status through Arts Council England (ACE).

ACE is increasing its funding in villages, towns and cities where investment is currently too low. A total of £446 million per annum of investment will bring art, culture, and creativity to more people, in more places, across the country. Level is one of 990 organisations to receive a share of the funding.

Peter Knott, Area Director for Arts Council England said: “We want creative communities in every corner of the country to have the opportunity to thrive, which is why we’re delighted to be investing in Level Centre over the next three years. It’ll be great to see them continue to connect with communities in rural Derbyshire and develop their Level Makes programme, giving adults with learning disabilities the opportunity to engage with visual and performing arts workshops.”

The portfolio organisations, including Level, will deliver The Arts Council’s new ‘Let’s Create’ strategy, its most varied and ambitious plan to date, designed to make sure that the public has the very best art and culture available to them in their neighbourhoods.
