Funding Awarded from Arts Council England

We were overjoyed to receive National Lottery Funding from the Arts Council England. This is enabling us to develop the work we do both locally and nationally to inspire children and young people to look, think and speak about art, both at the Sculpture Park at Roche Court as well as through our national flagship public speaking completion ARTiculation. The funding has also supported the development of our opportunities digitally, throughout lockdown and beyond. Thanks to all National Lottery Players for your support!
