NPO Success for Meadow Arts

29th June 2017

Meadow Arts is delighted to announce that it has been successful in its application to Arts Council England (ACE) for funding as a National Portfolio Organisation from 2018-22.

This means that the organisation can continue to bring its exciting programmes of contemporary art exhibitions and events to unusual places in the West Midlands, often in venues where art is not usually shown, and to support artists to make new work in new places.

Anne de Charmant, Meadow Arts’ Director says, “This is the third round of NPO funding we have received; we are proud and excited that ACE feel they can put their trust in our organisation to deliver excellent contemporary art projects of all sorts. The idiosyncratic business model of Meadow Arts allows us to adapt and change as the world around us does.”

Peter Knott, Area Director, Arts Council England said: "Meadow Arts works with other organisations to bring visual art to public spaces across rural areas and we're happy to be supporting them over the next four years. It'll be great to see our funding supporting them to develop new projects and commission both national and international artists to create and curate work in unexpected places, across the West Midlands and beyond."

This summer Synthetic Landscapes brings work by outstanding artists to Shropshire venues Weston Park and Shrewsbury Museum & Art Gallery, with new commissions by Pablo Bronstein, Heather & Ivan Morison and David Bethell, and an exhibition featuring work by Edward Chell, Ged Quinn, Helen Maurer, Hélène Muheim, Julian Opie, Jasleen Kaur, Ryan Gander, Dafna Talmor and Salvatore Arancio.

This autumn in Hereford, we partner the Courtyard Centre for the Arts to produce an exhibition of new and existing works by internationally renowned artist Mariele Neudecker. A new commission by Heather & Ivan Morison will open at The Hive in Worcester.

Next year our major exhibition will take place in Worcester. We have plans to bring stunning art projects to public spaces throughout the region, while we also extend and continue our programme of artists’ talks.

We look forward to seeing you soon.
