The Partnership Investment Programme

Our Partnership Investment (PI) programme seeks to develop, through co-investment, high quality arts and cultural activity for children and young people. We are interested in investing in opportunities that represent a significant strategic development to enable the provision of arts and cultural activities to become more sustainable.

 What are our objectives?

  • To encourage new investment in arts and cultural activity for children and young people aged 0 – 19
  • To increase demand, and the provision of, high quality arts and cultural activity for children and young people in areas of lowest participation
  • To increase the level of Arts Award moderations and the number of schools with an Artsmark (where applicable)

Our Partnership Investment is intended to:

  • Represent a significant strategic development to enable sustainability
  • Unlock new sources of revenue for arts and cultural activities by providing those we invest in with financial leverage
  • Enable emerging partnerships, such as Local Cultural Education Partnerships, to develop into long term relationships
  • Support the growth of new robust business models
  • Enable the development of new skills and capacities
  • Incentivise commissioners to commit to a longer term investment relationship, including from non-arts investors
