In response to the COVID19 lock down, the Arts Council England are making £160 million of emergency funding available for creative industry organisations and individuals who will need it during the current crisis.
They have also changed the funding requirements for individuals and organisations currently in receipt of ACE funding, to help alleviate pressure on them as best they can.
