Architecture Week and the Architecture Foundation have been given almost £100,000 by the Arts Council as part of a New Audiences project designed to increase arts audiences in England.
Part of a one-off £5 million fund, New Audiences is aimed at young people with few chances to see the arts such as those in isolated, rural areas or deprived inner cities.
The foundation's £75,000 grant will go towards its roadshow, a three- month series of events and workshops looking at public spaces. Architecture Week's £20,000 aims to encourage people to try out arts that are new to them. Bristol's Architecture Centre was also a winner, being given £29,260 to host three architecture and design exhibitions.
