Kent County Council's Art Investment Fund now open

Kent County Council invests in the arts because it values the contribution Arts and Culture bring to the wellbeing of the county and its potential to grow the Kent economy. It is recognised as a valuable tool for the county’s work in economic and social regeneration, tourism, environmental protection, planning, health, community safety, skills development and education. 

The Arts Investment Fund is managed by the Kent Arts and Cultural Service who support the development of the arts and creativity through identifying opportunities, enabling partnerships and maintaining the creative infrastructure in Kent, working within the framework of the Kent Cultural Strategy
 
The Arts Investment Fund makes it possible for us to invest and develop the reputation of Kent as a world class cultural location, and it challenges creative practitioners and arts organisations to create new and excellent quality work, develop initiatives that support the growth of the creative infrastructure and reach new audiences.
