Brighton & Hove Arts Council was founded in 1974 by a group of enthusiasts to support and promote the not-for-profit arts sector in Brighton, Hove and beyond. We are a registered charity that continues to be run entirely by unpaid volunteers.

As well as our Individual Members, we currently have over sixty
Group Members in the fields of theatre, music, dance, poetry, debating, painting, sculpture, singing, local radio and the written word.

We do not offer grants, and have no discretionary funding available.
