Proposal for arts@leeds - Year 5 Extension

This report seeks approval from Executive Board to extend the arts@leeds funding programme for a fifth year. Operated through funding rounds usually lasting between 3 to 4 years, a fifth year would extend the current round of funding to 31 March 2023. Extending the programme would not rule out a change to the budget for arts@leeds through the council’s budget setting process for FY 2022/23 but would mean that the programme is aligned to the Arts Council funding rounds and organisations can plan with greater certainty.
