We are hugely pleased to announce that Kinetika has been granted a further three years of support from the Arts Council England as a National Portfolio Organisation. As we approach our 20th Anniversary in 2017, we embark on an exciting new chapter to promote creativity and raise aspirations in the East of England.

We’re already making great progress with partnerships from our new home in Thurrock. The Arts Council’s support will really assist our growth in this region. I look forward to what the future brings

We can delight in our arts organisations and museums for the sheer inspiration they bring to our daily lives as well as their contribution to the creative sector. I’m proud that we’ve been able to deliver such a strong and well balanced portfolio.
