Jewish Museum London joins Arts Council England's National Portfolio

27 JUNE 2017

Jewish Museum London is delighted to announce that it is joining Arts Council England’s National Portfolio for 2018 - 2022.

Becoming a National Portfolio Organisation (NPO) means that the Jewish Museum London will receive £880,000 in funding from 2018-22 (£220,000 per year, subject to a funding agreement and business plan), helping Arts Council England in its mission to bring great arts and culture to everyone.

This is the first time that the Jewish Museum London has received regular annual funding from the Arts Council England. The Jewish Museum is one of 183 new organisations to be added to the National Portfolio and to receive this important funding.

Being awarded NPO status is a recognition of the museum’s successes since the re-opening in 2010, as well as its ambitious plans for the future.

Abigail Morris, Director of the Jewish Museum London, said;

‘We are absolutely thrilled with today’s announcement. Joining the Arts Council England’s National Portfolio is a recognition of the importance of the Jewish Museum as a cultural asset of national importance as well as our work in challenging prejudice, sparking imaginations, and celebrating difference.”
