‘Our Capital investment programme is a very practical way of helping to develop the arts infrastructure in this country so that organisations can flourish and continue to produce the excellent work that audiences want to see.’
The investment is part of the organisation’s strategic funding drive which aims to encouraging private giving and build audiences for the arts.
