Homotopia is delighted to announce our success in securing National Portfolio funding by Arts Council England. The funding awarded also includes an uplift between 2018-22.
Building on our work to date since 2004 our award from Arts Council England will further develop Homotopia as one of the largest LGBT festivals in the UK.
This funding will see us build from this base over the next four years and expand our role as a nationally significant organisation, a champion for diverse, cross art-form and cross-sector collaborative practice and a conduit for innovation and artist led ideas.
Homotopia Artistic Director Gary Everett added,
“The NPO award is testament that Arts Council England are committed to supporting contemporary diverse voices through great art and culture. Our core mission is to support artists and communities to collaborate and realise eclectic, meaningful, diverse contemporary artwork that reflects the LGBTQ+ experience.
Homotopia commissions and presents work across many artforms culminating in a world class festival. We are thrilled we can continue this important work and look forward to working with both established and emerging artists over the next 4 years”
