Extra money has been made available to a range of arts organizations across England, provided they can match the amounts offered by their own fund raising. Dulwich Picture Gallery, which is not government funded, will get an extra £2 million, provided it can raise that much itself. Other galleries set to benefit are the Serpentine Gallery (£3m), Turner Contemporary (Margate), the Whitechapel Gallery (east London), Holburne Museum of Art (Bath), National Portrait Gallery (all of which get £1m each), Sir John Soane’s Museum (London) (£2m) and the Victoria and Albert Museum (£5m). Strawberry Hill Trust is set to receive £500,000.
The money for these Catalyst Endowment Awards is being provided jointly by the Department for Culture, Media & Sport, the Arts Council England and the Heritage Lottery Fund.
Cassone wishes all these organizations very good luck in their efforts to raise the necessary matching funds.
