Arts Council Collection National Partners Programme
The National Partners Programme was launched in 2016 to mark the 70th anniversary of the Arts Council Collection – the most widely circulated national loan collection of modern and contemporary British art in the world.
As part of the second round of the programme running from 2019-2022, Firstsite has been chosen as one of the regional galleries and museums to present and curate exhibitions drawn from their collection. Other partners selected include Sunderland Culture in Tyne and Wear, and The Newlyn Art Gallery and The Exchange in Cornwall.
Funded by the National Lottery, the programme aims to build a deeper relationship with regional audiences by building a UK-wide network across regional partners, connecting local visitors to their national collection.
