Five Norfolk arts bodies will receive funding totalling more than £5.1m across three years, from 2012. The British Centre for Literary Translation is one of them.
The funding of £388,500 for 2012-2015 has been awarded to the centre through the national portfolio programme. The Norfolk and Norwich Festival, Norwich Arts Centre, Norwich Writers’ Centre and Norwich-based dance company Tilted Productions have also received increased grants.
The writers’ centre is currently leading a bid, in which the literary translation centre is a key supporter, for Norwich to become England’s first UNESCO City of Literature.
The criteria had included supporting organisations which demonstrated excellence, were linked to their communities, had good education programmes and were important to the local economy.
