Funding & Investment

Arts Council England have committed funding for Royal Opera House Bridge for a further four years for the period 2018-22. This will be used to support networks and initiatives that expand and deepen arts and cultural opportunities for all young people across the region


How we invest

Working with a wide range of partners we help uncover new opportunities, support innovation and build resilience in the region.

All of the projects we co-invest in generate real impact in improving access and engagement and are designed to have a legacy far beyond our initial input.

For more examples of how we work and previous co-investments read The Paths We Take - ROH Bridge 2012 to 2015 and beyond.

Partnership Investment

A third of our budget is allocated for co-investment. Partnership investment in the period 2018-22 is allocated through Local Cultural Education Partnerships. Please contact your regional programme manager for more information.

Network Development

We support the emergence of new networks and help strengthen existing ones, looking at professional development and local collaborations.

Research and Advocacy

We commission research into local needs and opportunities within the cultural and education sector. Identifying and celebrating good practice we then work strategically to strengthen the local infrastructure that will sustain it.

Teaching Schools

We work directly with teaching schools and their alliances, developing creative learning in schools and fostering relationships with the local cultural sector.

Training and Conferences

We run and support a number of events focused on training and development and sharing good practice.

How to get involved

We do not currently offer an open call for potential co-investment opportunities.

Our regional programme managers work directly with local organisations to identify local needs, develop suitable partnerships and support investment.
