National Portfolio Announcement

Posted on November 4th, 2022

Today HighTide announce that it will be continuing as an Arts Council England National Portfolio Organisation from 2023-26. This will enable us to provide a meaningful contribution to ACE’s ‘Let’s Create’ strategy through our productions of new work, creative talent programmes and community engagement projects in the East of England.

In a joint statement today Joint CEOs Rowan Rutter (Executive Director), Clare Slater (Artistic Director) and Chair of Trustees Tim Clark said:

‘We are honoured and grateful to continue as a part of ACE’s national portfolio. We take this as recognition of the vital work HighTide does across the East of England.  We’re energised by the nationwide change that will be enacted through ACE’s Let’s Create strategy – which now feels more vital than ever – and we’re ready to contribute towards it.  We’ll be continuing in our mission to engage diverse communities with inspiring new writing in the East of England and we look forward to announcing our upcoming projects shortly.’
