Arts Council England Funding News

LADA is delighted to have received an offer of National Portfolio Organisation (NPO) funding for 2018-22 from Arts Council England. Our NPO funding will continue at its current level, which is what we applied for, and includes an allocation towards the Live Art UK network. 

LADA has also received a ‘Small Capital’ grant from Arts Council England, which will help support the costs of our new space on Mansford Street, Bethnal Green, London. LADA’s Capital grant will support the purchase of a leasehold interest on our new facility for the next six years and equipment/fittings for the space.

LADA’s staff and Board are greatly appreciative of the acknowledgement of our work shown by this support, and we’re looking forward continuing to develop our programmes and impact on the Live Art and wider cultural sectors.
