Higher Rhythm Arts Council

Higher Rhythm is an Arts Council England NPO (National Portfolio Organisation)

Arts Council England NPO investment supports the work of Higher Rhythm, helping us, broadly to: 

  • Support developing music artists through recording and releasing works.
  • Develop audiences (live and digital) for regional artists.
  • Provide opportunities for the least engaged art audience segments to experience high quality arts activities. 
  • Provide opportunities for young people to participate in creative activities and achieve Arts Awards. 

Arts Council England are the national development agency for creativity and culture. By 2030 they aim for England to be a country in which the creativity of each of us is valued and given the chance to flourish and where everyone of us has access to a remarkable range of high quality cultural experiences.

Small Capital Funding

As an NPO, Arts Council England also committed capital investment of £116k from March 2020 to our organisation, under their Small Capital Programme. This continues vital refurbishment of our premises towards providing a high quality arts experience for future participants in our programmes.

Culture Recovery Fund

From October 2020 to March 2021 we also secured £51,784 from the Culture Recovery Fund. In April 2021 we secured £29984 from the Culture Recovery Fund for the period up to the end of June 2021. This will allow to restructure and rebuild specific activities amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. Specifically we are developing our online programmes so that people can continue to access the creative activities that Higher Rhythm offer.
