Lighthouse is delighted to announce that it will continue to receive funding as part of Arts Council England’s National Portfolio, a network of galleries, theatres and museums that forms the backbone of England’s arts and cultural landscape.

The funding will be used to continue to support the most exciting artists and filmmakers working at the intersection of art, technology and digital culture by commissioning and exhibiting their work.

The funding news is further recognition of the organisation’s impact and influence locally, nationally and internationally and its potential for future growth as a UK leader in digital culture.

Lighthouse’s Artistic Director, Juha van’ t Zelfde says: ‘This is fantastic news for Lighthouse, the artists we support and the audiences we serve. It demonstrates the Arts Council’s faith in us and our focus on creating a home for emerging practices, cross-discipline collaboration and developing new work.’

Executive Director Miriam Randall, says: ‘This is a real accolade given the tight financial times the arts sector is currently facing. The investment gives us a solid foundation to build on for an exciting new phase for Lighthouse, enabling us to keep expanding our profile, position and reach for the future.’
