We’re delighted that Inspire has been chosen to
join Arts Council England’s National Portfolio. As a National Portfolio
Organisation (NPO) Inspire will receive regular funding from the Arts Council,
totalling £249,999 each year. This funding started on 1 April 2018 and runs until 2022.
This is the first time that library services have
been eligible to apply to become part of the National Portfolio and we’re
excited to be able to build on our successful programme of arts and cultural
events held throughout our libraries.
We’ll deliver an ambitious plan of work to:
- create an exciting programme
of arts and cultural activities and events for children, young people and
- develop innovative cultural
programmes for under 5s
- deliver a range of arts
activity accessible to young people with disabilities
- develop and innovate digital
