ACE National Portfolio Organisation grants

The visual arts organisations the Arts Council has selected for funding as National Portfolio Organisations.

ACE’s decision to prioritise big lottery-funded galleries over smaller-scale and production-based venutures will impact severely on artists’ livelihoods. a-n calls on all these funded galleries to allocate fees and payments to artists in support of the critical mass to guarantee that quality visual arts will emerge in the future.
