London's National Portfolio 2018-22
London is a global cultural capital - home to international jewels of art, culture and heritage and a melting pot of innovation and artistic excellence.
It is one of the most ethnically and socio-economically diverse cities in the world.
And we’re pleased to welcome the 253 arts and culture organisations that we’ll be working with from 2018-22 to represent, celebrate and support this city, and provide great art and culture for everyone in London and beyond.
We know that arts and culture inspire empathy, understanding and cohesion. We know that this is more important than ever in our great cities
True to our commitment to move more funds outside of the capital, London received a standstill budget of £161 million Grant in Aid and National Lottery per year: the same amount as the current 2015-2018 funding period.
Despite this, we have been able to bring 24 new organisations into the London National Portfolio for the first time, and award additional investment to 21 current National Portfolio Organisations (NPOs).
