Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
London's Photographers' Gallery and the Photo London fair are amongst the largest beneficiaries of today's Arts Council England investment of £257 million in 1,385 venues, theatres, museums and cultural organisations, through the first tranche of Culture Recovery Fund: Grants programme.
The announcement was only for Round 1 of grants applications under £1 million. Further announcements will highlight round two of Grants under £1 million, grants over £1 million, and the Capital Kickstart and Repayable Finance programmes.
The funding is for organisations and there continues to be minimal or no direct support for freelancers and artists, although some support may trickle down from those funded organisations.
For photography the following principal organisations have benefited:
|Amber Film & Photography Collective||£172,363||Newcastle upon Tyne Central|
|Derby QUAD Ltd||£245,000||Derby South|
|Four Corners||£98,735||Bethnal Green and Bow|
