RIBA arts lottery response calls for more help

  • Comment

Help from specially trained advisers should be available to applicants for arts lottery funding, the riba argues in its response to the Arts Council's consultation paper on arts lottery strategy, 'Making a Difference'.

The riba warns against the kind of precipitous change that followed the introduction of the National Lottery Act last year. And it is concerned about the proposed redistribution of some money to the Regional Arts Boards, saying, 'Measures should be taken to ensure that the existing central expertise continues to be used, otherwise there will be further waste.'

The Institute also recommends concentrating resources on 'consolidating the results of those awards already made. Experience has shown that many of these projects, whether of renovation or new-build, need further work to properly complete them'.
