Curating Commissioning Producing

On 1 July 2014 we received unexpected news that Arts Council England have decided not to continue to support Electra as an NPO. We are sad to announce that our current NPO funding will cease after March 2015. Whilst we do not anticipate that this decision will affect any of our programmes currently under development, we are now working towards securing the organisation's long term financial future.

Whilst we believe this decision does not reflect Electra's widely acknowledged record of achievement, we are grateful to have been in receipt of regular funding from Arts Council England since 2005, contributing towards a solid organisational basis for the many unique projects that we are so proud to have developed and presented, and we hope to work with Arts Council Enlgand in the future in other capacities. This continued support from Arts Council England has enabled Electra to flourish: developing our practice of independent, process-based relationships between artist, curator and audiences, which seeks to give projects space to find their own rhythm, public outputs, and discourse.

With NPO funding at a level of approximately £65,000 per annum over recent years, and often told that we "punch above our weight", we feel we have been able to make a significant impact on the many artists we have worked with, and for the audiences who have valued our work. We extend huge gratitude for all the support from artists, colleagues, funders, friends and wider audiences over the years. We feel overwhelmed by the support we have already received in this challenging moment, confirming more than ever the value of our work, which we will do everything within our power to continue.
