Whitaker awarded 'Full Accreditation' by Arts Council England
Following a recent review of the Accredited status of The Whitaker Museum, considered by a panel appointed by Arts Council England, ‘Full Accreditation’ status has been awarded to the Whitaker for the next 3 years.
In their report, issued last week, the panel congratulated the Whitaker Group, who stepped in to manage the site in 2013, on their hard-work and dedication to achieve this success, noting ‘that it’s such a positive turnaround for the museum’.
The Arts Council England is a government-funded body dedicated to promoting the performing, visual and literary arts in England. Since 1994, Arts Council England has been responsible for distributing lottery funding. This investment has helped to transform the building stock of arts organisations and to create lots of additional high quality arts activity.
The newly awarded accolade sees the Whitaker sit alongside, The National Gallery, Tate, Museum of Science & Industry & The Whitworth, plus many more, who have also been awarded ‘Full Accreditation’ status.
