Ten arts organisations that "boldly reimagined their missions to put communities first during the pandemic" have been shortlisted for a new award.
The Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation and King's College London will award £150,000 - one award of £100,000 and two of £25,000 - to organisations that are "uniquely modelling what it means to have a civic role," Andrew Barnett, Director of the foundation's UK branch, said.
"Their approaches will inform and inspire the work of others at this challenging time."
Out of 260 applicants, 10 have been selected for pursuing new programmes of work ranging from food parcel deliveries to wellbeing phone call drives and booking hotel rooms for self isolation.
