A big day for the arts

Today we'll find out whose made the cut for the Arts Council England (ACE) funding round. Arts and cultural orgnisations up and down the country will be frantic right now, with many employees struggling to sleep wondering if their jobs would still be safe in the morning. Up to 1,333 organisations submitted bids to be a part of the exclusive new portfolio for ACE. Each bid would have to help fulfill one of their five goals set-out in their 10-year strategic framework, Achieving Great Arts for Everyone.

Here's a reminder of the goals

Goal 1: Talent and artistic excellence are thriving and celebrated

Goal 2: More people experience and are inspired by the arts

Goal 3: The arts are sustainable, resilient and innovative

Goal 4: The arts leadership and workforce are diverse and highly skilled

Goal 5: Every child and young person has the opportunity to experience the richness of the arts

This final goal is the one The Mighty Creatives (TMC) is hoping to help ACE reach. News on TMC's bid submission will be posted at
