Two Sporta member trusts have been announced as recipients of National Portfolio Organisations (NPOs) by the Arts Council England (ACE), and will receive funding to deliver arts and cultural initiatives over the period 2018-22.

Magna Vitae Trust for Leisure and Culture, based in East Lincolnshire, secured another round of funding for their annual ‘SO’ Festival. Delivered jointly with East Lindsey District Council and others, the festival brings high quality art and entertainment to residents and visitors in areas of low cultural engagement across the region.

Additionally, Mytime Active’s ‘Arts Train’ initiative was funded as an NPO for the first time. ‘Arts Train’, a music education project with young people at its core, was developed by the trust to bring creative music making opportunities in the southeast and outer London to young people who might otherwise experience the arts. The project has made a genuine impact on young people’s lives and has transformed the cultural landscape of music within South East London.

Considered leaders in their areas, NPOs are entrusted with a collective responsibility to protect and develop the national arts and cultural ecology. The inclusion of NPDO social enterprises in this funding displays the diversity and high quality of the services Sporta member trusts continue to provide, and the importance of the role they play in engaging people in the most need through cultural projects alongside sport and leisure.
