ARTS COUNCIL FUNDING CUTS/INCREASES

The Arts Council of England has released details of funding for arts organisations up to 2014/15.

The decisions have been reached against the background of public spending cuts in the Government’s attempt to reduce the national deficit.

I haven’t had a chance to look at things in great detail yet, but it seems most major dance companies (The Royal Opera House, Birmingham Royal Ballet, English National Ballet, Northern Ballet, Phoenix Dance Company) have all had funding cut by 15% in real terms over the period. A notable exception is Rambert Dance Company, with a cut of just 4.4%.

Among dance organisations the stand out figure is a 43% cut in funding for Dance Umbrella, 29% for Shobana Jeyasingh Dance Company, 20% for the Contemporary Dance Trust (The Place).

Dance companies receiving increased funding in real terms include Jasmin Vardimon Dance Company (8%), George Piper Dances (Ballet Boyz) (15%), Retina Dance Company (25%), Wayne McGregor Random Dance (29%), Ballet Lorent (35%) and Hofesh Shechter Dance Company (73%).

The full Arts Council statement can be read at Arts Council statement

A few headline figures:

Across all the arts, total National Portfolio investment between April 2012 and March 2015 Grant in aid: £956m

Lottery: £54m for touring. £31m for children and young people

The Arts Council received 1,333 applications to join the National Portfolio, submitting bids for a total of £1.4 billion.

The new National Portfolio of 695 organisations replaces the previous regularly funded organisations portfolio of 849.

110 new organisations have been added to the National Portfolio.

791 previously regularly funded organisations applied for National Portfolio funding, 585 were successful.

206 former regularly funded organisations will no longer receive funding.
