Funding and support for the arts and heritage outside London

The Commons Select Committee on Culture Media and Sport has published Countries of Culture: Funding and support for the arts outside London.

Recommendations relating to heritage include:

  • An awareness-raising campaign led by DCMS to ensure that all arts and heritage organisations which qualify for charity status and benefits see themselves as charities;
  • Grants to DCMS directly-funded institutions, National Portfolio Organisations and Major Partner Museums, and Heritage Lottery Funding recipients should be conditional upon them sharing best practice with local cultural organisations to improve their skills in revenue generation; and
  • DCMS should develop more case studies to showcase innovation in revenue generation, across the arts and heritage sectors, which may be able to learn from each other, and make this available across the sector.
