Arts Council England - National Portfolio News

Tangled Feet are pleased of the opportunity to remain part of Arts Council England’s National Portfolio, and to be able to deliver the Let's Create strategy – a set of aims that tie very closely with our own organisational values and our creative outputs over the last decade. Nearly all of the work that Tangled Feet creates – which is often experienced at no cost to the audience – is dependant to some extent on public subsidy. We are relieved to have three years of stability to build upon, at a time that we recognise for our whole sector is one of unprecedented difficulty.


Our work over the next three years will explore the idea of recovery, with a continued shift towards sustainable creative practice, both environmentally and in terms of artists' and audience's welfare. From our base in Luton, and working nationally, we'll continue to centre the mental health and creative autonomy of young people, creating and touring work that evolves from and dovetails with our Dramatherapy and participation work. We will continue to create spaces in which we can bring a diverse range of people together to envisage routes towards alternative, more positive futures.


We will continue to centre and support freelancers, and to advocate for their needs in the sector.


Our hearts are very heavy today for the numerous brilliant companies and organisations who went through what was an incredibly difficult and soul-sucking application process and that haven't been funded, or who are having to cope with very significant funding cuts, and who will be feeling huge amounts of uncertainty at this time.
