Following this mornings announcement we are delighted to announce that GemArts is part of Arts Council England’s National Portfolio from 2018-2022.
GemArts Director, Vikas Kumar MBE said;
“GemArts is thrilled with today’s NPO news. This funding is hugely important to our plans for the next 4 years, and we are thankful that Arts Council England has continued to support our work during the 2018-2022 funding period.
The past 3 years have been a very exciting time for GemArts with regional and national awards recognising the positive difference our work makes, and the introduction of our Masala Festival (back 17th-23rd July) placing South Asian arts firmly on the North East arts scene. The coming 4 years will see the organisation continue to deliver an ambitious programme, supporting and championing the creative case for diversity at every level, offering something truly unique for artists, participants and audiences across the region.
This NPO funding alongside project grants, individual donors and corporate support, will enable GemArts to deliver an artistic programme with creativity, diversity and equality of opportunity at its heart”
