Culture Recovery Fund supports photography organisations

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
Lumen Arts £55,000 Leeds Central
Photo London Limited £200,000 Cities of London and Westminster
Photoworks £50,000 Brighton, Kemptown
Site Gallery £112,266 Sheffield Central
The Photographers' Gallery £356,420 Cities of London and Westminster
