MK Gallery is delighted to have been successful in its application to Arts Council England’s National Portfolio Funding programme for 2015-2018.

 

This is an essential boost in the Gallery’s future plans as it continues to progress towards its major expansion. It is also a great tribute to the cultural climate in Milton Keynes, which grows from strength to strength.

 

As well as presenting acclaimed exhibitions of international contemporary art, MK Gallery programmes hundreds of events and community projects.

 

ACE received 877 applications from arts organisations across the country for NPO funding, totalling far more than the available budget. Commenting on the award announcement, MK Gallery’s Director, Anthony Spira said,

 

In this challenging financial climate, Arts Council England’s confirmation of our funding award is extremely welcome, and a significant achievement. It supports and recognises our exciting vision and ambition for an expanded Gallery, better serving the needs of our city and our region.”
