Our national portfolio and beyond

As we announce our National portfolio of regularly funded organisations for the next three years, Theatre Relationship Manager Stephen Freeman blogs about his work at the Arts Council, and how it helps support theatre companies within the portfolio and beyond.


Looking back with pride - and forward with hope

Today Arts Council England announces its National portfolio of arts organisations and its Major partner museums for 2015-18.

I believe the decisions we’ve made reward ambition. We have looked to the future, investing in work for children and young people, and seeking to develop talent, wherever it emerges. We’ve sought to reach into more communities, while continuing to invest in arts organisations that have done great things in the last three years; we want them to build on their past work, and go further.
